Birch trees are the ultimate natural resource with virtually every part of the tree being utilised. The twigs are used for besoms and sauna whisks, timber for furniture and flooring; bark was used for roofing and canoes, and even the sap for wine! Waste timber and residue at plywood mills is used for boiler fuel and helps create additional energy for small towns.
Since the late 19th Century one of the main uses of Birch is for high quality plywood that is widely used for furniture, construction, toys, vehicle building, packaging and today high-tech wind turbine blades. From an Environmental Perspective, Birch is an abundant species found in the forests of the northern hemisphere being widespread across Russia and most of Northern Europe, in particular Finland and countries bordering the Baltic. Birch species are relatively fast growing and support a myriad of varied wildlife, and where managed as a sustainable forest resource, does not impinge on the natural biodiversity.
