Red Birch

Betula alleghaniensis

 

Color

This species looks similar to cherry wood, but does not darken dramatically as it is exposed to sunlight. Because red birch is the select heartwood from yellow birch trees, some sapwood of a lighter color may be blended in the mix of boards.

Texture

Red Birch is a strong, durable, closed-grained wood with a very even texture.

Common applications

Furniture, internal joinery and panelling, doors, flooring, kitchen cabinets, turning and toys.
