Betula populifolia, Gray Birch, is a deciduous tree native to North America. Known for its sweet sap harvested in early spring before the leaves unfurl, this tree is a treat for both the taste buds and the eye. Ferment the sap to make birch beer or vinegar, or drink it straight as a delicious beverage. Gray Birch is also useful for naturalizing in dry, poor soil or boggy areas alike, as it tends to sucker and form clumps. Its bark is a dull, chalky white, with shiny dark green leaves that transition to a beautiful yellow in the fall. This fast-growing tree reaches 20 to 30 feet tall and 15-inch trunk diameter, forming an irregular open crown of slender branches. Its wood is medium-hard and is used for high-grade plywood, furniture, drum shells, spools and firewood. This short-lived tree is a common pioneer species on abandoned fields and burned areas. So, plant a Betula populifolia - Gray Birch and enjoy its delicious sap and beautiful foliage today!
