The wood of sweet birch is medium heavy, medium hard and dark brown with a little red. Sapwood is light brown or yellow.
The wood, which tends to warp, slowly gets darker after it is exposed to air. Over time, furniture made from sweet birch looks like mahogany, and its wood is stronger than mahogany and black cherry. It takes about 150 years for sweet birch to reach a size that appeals to loggers.

Care:
