Wood Products Value
River birch wood is hard, strong, and close-grained. It is, however, of
limited commercial value since it is usually too knotty to be used for
lumber [7,13]. Its main uses are for local furniture manufacture,
basket materials, small woodenware, and fuel. River birch is
occasionally harvested with other bottomland species for pulpwood ,
and is used in some areas for veneer . Since the wood is strong and
lighter than commercially important birches, it is suitable for
artificial limbs and toys .
