Birch is a fine grained wood known for its satin-like sheen. Like many woods, it naturally varies in color as the sapwood is creamy white to warm yellow and the heartwood is a darker brownish-red. For our customers who prefer a floor with consistent color, we can select just the sapwood portions of the Birch tree. These floor planks are 95 percent sapwood with little color variation.
When we’re sawing Birch, it smells wonderfully minty in the mill–Black Birch, also known as Sweet Birch, was once the source for commercial oil of wintergreen.
Birch is a hardwood with excellent impact resistance, ideal for any area of your home.
