Betula pendula Roth
Common Names: Birch bark & leaf , White Birch, Sweet Birch, Cherry Birch , Synonyms : White Birch. Bouleau. Berke. Bereza. Monoecia triandria. B. pubescens. B. verrucosa.
Habitat : Europe, from Sicily to Iceland. Northern Asia.
Plant Description: The name is a very ancient one, probably derived from the Sanscrit bhurga, a tree whose bark is used for writing upon. From its uses in boat-building and roofing it is also connected with the A.S. beorgan, to protect or shelter.
Coleridge speaks of it as the Lady of the Woods. It is remarkable for its lightness, grace, and elegance, and after rain it has a fragrant odour.
The young branches are of a rich red brown or orange brown, and the trunks usually white, especially in the second species of B. alba, B. verrucosa. B. pubescens is darker, and has downy instead of warted twigs.
The wood is soft and not very durable, but being cheap, and the tree being able to thrive in any situation and soil, growing all over Europe, is used for many humble purposes, such as bobbins for thread mills, herring-barrel staves, broom handles, and various fancy articles.
In country districts the Birch has very many uses, the lighter twigs being employed for thatching and wattles. The twigs are also used in broom making and in the manufacture of cloth. The tree has also been one of the sources from which asphyxiating gases have been manufactured, and its charcoal is much used for gunpowder.
Plant Part Used: Bark, leaves,blossom
