Paper Birch

Betula papyrifera


The mature bark of a paper birch is white, peeling in papery horizontal strips. Leaves are alternate and egg-shaped, larger towards the base and tapered to a sharp poised tip.


Spotted on the Tamarac Blackbird Drive. Found in part shade, sun, upland forests. Adapts to cooler, moisture conditions that a forest ecology provides.


Paper birch is a native tree and is common in Minnesota
