Our Yellow Birch hardwood comes from approximately 100-mile radius (62 km) of our manufacturing facilities in New York and Pennsylvania. Heartwood tends to be a light reddish-brown, with nearly white sapwood. There is virtually no color distinction between annual growth rings, giving Birch a uniform appearance. The grain is generally straight or slightly wavy, with a fine, even texture. Yellow Birch lumber is typically easy to work with hand and machine tools, turns, glues, and finishes well. Kiln-dried Yellow Birch is often used for furniture, kitchen cabinets, paneling, moldings (interior trim), interior doors, flooring, and other small specialty wood items.
