Paper Birch
Betula papyrifera

This native tree, also called White Birch or Canoe Birch is often planted for its black-etched, white bark. While it is amazingly versatile for human uses, it is a valuable food source for wildlife including yellow-bellied sapsuckers, whose sap wells are subsequently used by red squirrels and hummingbirds.

Growth Habit:Deciduous tree, can grow to 70 feet and may have multiple trunks as a result of browsing by wildlife.
