Birch – Flame

Betula alleghaniensis
Also known as |
American Birch|Birch|Birch Maple|Yellow Birch

Flame Birch is not a species in and of itself, but rather the name given to Yellow Birch with a beautiful flamed figure across the grain.  Yellow Birch heart wood can vary from pale yellow to a light, muted reddish brown; sapwood is grayish-white. There are many species of Birch worldwide, it is one of the most popular woods, ironically, for both veneer and utility applications. Figured pieces are the more desirable for veneer, with wide, dramatic curly figuring (similar to Cherry) decorating the surface.

American Birch works easily and it turns, glues and finishes well, although most boards have very little natural luster. It’s a versatile wood that can be used for a number of different applications, but it needs to be protected, as the wood will decay when exposed to the elements.

Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Why We Love This Wood
