Characteristics of Birch Wood


Heartwood tends to be a light reddish brown, with nearly white sapwood. Occasionally figured pieces are available with a wide, shallow curl similar to the curl found in cherry wood.


Grain is generally straight or slightly wavy, with a fine, even texture.

Rot Resistance:

Birch is perishable, and will readily rot and decay if exposed to the elements. The wood is also susceptible to insect attack. Proper heat & chemical treatment is advisable.


Generally easy to work with hand and machine tools, though boards with wild grain can cause grain tearout during machining operations. Turns, glues, and finishes well.


No characteristic odor.


This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common Uses:

Plywood, boxes, crates, turned objects, interior trim, and other small specialty wood items.
