Common Name(s): Silver Birch
Scientific Name: Betula pendula
Distribution: Europe and southwest Asia
Tree Size: 20-30 m tall, 0.3-.6 m trunk diameter
Average Dried Weight: 640 kg/m3 (MC 12%)
Color/Appearance: Heartwood tends to be a light reddish brown, with nearly white sapwood. Occasionally figured pieces are available with a wide, shallow curl similar to the curl found in Cherry. There is virtually no color distinction between annual growth rings, giving Birch a somewhat dull, uniform appearance.
Grain/Texture: Grain is generally straight or slightly wavy, with a fine, even texture. Low natural luster.
Rot Resistance: Birch is perishable, and will readily rot and decay if exposed to the elements. The wood is also susceptible to insect attack.
Workability: Generally easy to work with hand and machine tools, though boards with wild grain can cause grain tearout during machining operations. Turns, glues, and finishes well.
Common Uses: Plywood, boxes, crates, turned objects, interior trim, and other small specialty wood items.
