(Betula allegheniensis) Mature Height: 60′ to 75′

This cool-loving native of northeastern North America is often found growing on north-facing slopes and enjoys shade to part shade. Its name reflects the color of its bark. The wood of this species is extensively used for flooring, cabinetry and toothpicks. Broken twigs have a wintergreen smell. The bark is amber to silvery, with a smooth texture, and is shed in thin rolls.
