Overview

Found throughout Europe, including the British Isles, Birch is also known as birch, silver birch and warty birch. It penetrates farther north than any other broad-leaved tree, and will grow where it is subject to great heat just as well as it will endure extreme cold. It extends from above the Arctic Circle, through northern Europe down to central Spain.

There is no distinct heartwood, the wood being whitish to pale brown, without conspicuous features, fairly straight grained, and fine-textured.

Dried Birch timber is similar to oak in most strength properties, and superior to that timber in compression along the grain, stiffness and toughness. The wood works fairly easily, and can be planed and moulded to a good clean surface. It can be glued, stained and polished satisfactorily, and is a good turnery wood.
