In a Nutshell:
* B. utilis var. jacquemontii is a variety from the western Himalayas (Kashmir to central Nepal) that is most noted for its exceptionally white bark. It is named after French naturalist Victor Jacquemont (1801-1832). Technically the main differences between the variety and the species are that the variety has fewer vein pairs per leaf (7-9 pairs for the variety and 10-14 pairs for the species) and whiter bark. more...
* This is a medium sized tree that typically grows to 30-40’ (sometimes to 60-70') tall with an open pyramidal habit. Although bark color can be variable, many authorities consider the bark from this variety to be the whitest found on any birch. more...
* The wood is very hard and heavy, and quite brittle. The heartwood is pink or light reddish brown. more...

A paper is made from the inner bark. The outer bark can be carefully peeled off the tree (this does not harm the tree) and used as a paper. more...
