Yellow birch has a white sapwood and light reddish brown heartwood. The wood is generally straight-grained with a fine uniform texture. Generally characterized by a plain and often curly or wavy pattern.
The wood works fairly easily, glues well with care, takes stain extremely well, and nails and screws satisfactorily where pre-boring is advised. It dries rather slowly with little degrade, but it has moderately high shrinkage, so is susceptible to movement in performance.
The wood of yellow birch is heavy, hard and strong. It has very good bending properties, with good crushing strength and shock resistance.

“The flooring installed great. The layout pattern looks great.
Thanks for working with our construction schedule. It was great to be able to have the flooring delivered just before we needed it. I have already recommended your products to other builders in my area.”
JC, Hanover, NH Contractor
“I have to tell you that it went down beautifully. All the boards held their straightness during the acclimation. The sanding and edge easing was great. No fuss.
It's a great product, which I will use again.”
