Caring for Betula lenta

  • River birch is perhaps the most culturally adaptable and heat tolerant of the birches. Prefers moist, acidic, fertile soils including semi-aquatic conditions, but also tolerates drier soils.
  • Consider using soaker hoses and bark mulches to keep the root zones cool and moist. Adapts well to heavy clay soils of Missouri and will tolerate poor drainage.
  • Avoid pruning in spring when the sap is running.

Typical uses of Betula lenta

Special features: Over time, furniture made from sweet birch looks like mahogany, and its wood is stronger than mahogany and black cherry.

Culinary use: Commercially in the past for production of oil

Medicinal use: In every form, birch makes an excellent tonic and detoxifier, mainly working on the urinary system to remove waste products, as in kidney or bladder stone, gravel, gout, and rheumatism.
