    Description

    Of the forty or so species of trees that comprise this genera, seven are native to North America. Three are of silvicultural importance in North America: yellow birch, paper birch, and sweet birch (USDA Forest Service 1965). When ornamental, landscaping, and reclamation uses are considered, three additional species—gray birch, European white birch, and river birch—and numerous varieties would be included.
