Silver birch


Recommended Posts

So I just moved, and there are a *bunch* of silver birch trees that are wind fallen in the woods behind my house. Is it work the time to cut them up and use them in projects? How stable is silver birch? I don't see it being used often in projects online - is there a reason for that?


Thanks in advance.

I'm in Nova Scotia, so I'm guessing it's not actually silver birch, but it does look very much like the silver birch I used to see when I lived in England. 

I own a chainsaw and an alaskan mill, so I can probably get some boards out of it. I'll spend some time on some of the bigger pieces and see what I can get.

Thanks for your response - and I love your work! Very nice.
