Usage: Paper birch is usually cultivated for its highly ornamental bark which is especially attractive in winter, framed by its delicate lacy twigs. A small group of paper birches looks great in front of dark green evergreen conifers. American Indians used the tough, lightweight bark of paper birch to cover their wigwams and birch bark canoes, as well as to make baskets, water-tight containers, and dishes. They also made a tea from the leaves and a sweet syrup from the sap.
