Birch Bark, or Betula pendula, is also known as Betula, Betulae Folium, Betula verrucosa, Downy Birch, Silver Birch, Weeping Birch, and White Birch.
The birch is a soft-wood tree, native to cold, northern climates.
The leaves are wedge-shaped, and although they have a pleasant scent, they have a bitter taste.
Since birch trees are among the first to come into leaf, they are celebrated as harbingers of spring.
