RUSSIAN BIRCH


 
There are several closely related species of Birch available from Russia which commonly marketed as 
RUSSIAN BIRCH:

SILVER BIRCH - BETULA PUBESCENS;
WHITE BARK BIRCH - BETULA PENDULA;
SIBERIAN  BIRCH - BETULA KRILOVII;

 
Silver Birch and White Bark Birch are worldwide known for being used in production of Baltic Birch plywood and lumber. Siberian Birch due to remoteness of recourses from production sites has been less  engaged in this regard, however more mills has been built recently in Siberia. To its advantage, Siberian Birch contains less dark heartwood and it is what makes it more appreciable.

 
Birch is a medium size tree standing up to 80-100 feet tall and with a bowl diameter (at the breast height) growing up to 15-30 inches.
