Yellow Birch

Betula alleghaniensis

Birch trees are great landscape choices for moist soils.  Their small leaves create a pretty, dotted shade.  Economically, birch trees are important for their lumber. Their wood is used extensively for cabinets, furniture, flooring, and doors.  Leaves are dull dark green turning to yellowish bronze color in the fall.
