Birch is a hardwood that grows primarily in northeast U.S. and Canada. It is in the same family as alder and hornbeam. Birch is commonly called gray, white, black, curly, silver, and even yellow birch. Its sapwood is creamy white, while the heartwood is golden brown. Birch is a very attractive choice for end grain, especially with water-based urethane.
