Planting & Care
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.

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • The inner bark of sweet birch has a strong wintergreen scent, which led to its use in the production of oil of wintergreen.
  • The wintergreen produced from sweet birch is identical to that produced by the wintergreen plant
    In the past, people who lived in the Appalachians cut down large numbers of sweet birches to produce oil of wintergreen.
  • Around 100 saplings and young trees were needed to produce a quart of the product, which was sold to druggists to flavor candy and medicines.
  • Oil of wintergreen is now produced synthetically.
