Betula lenta / Black Birch


A favorite of ours, the fine twigs and sweet inner bark of this tree make a delicious wintergreen tea with soothing properties. This fast growing tree thrives in forest gaps in well-drained soil. Its silver-purple bark is often graced with seafoam green lichen in maturity, which glows after rainstorms. Has permaculture applications as a dynamic accumulator of soil nutrients and both edible and medicinal properties. Larval host for the Green Comma butterfly.
