Paper Birch, also known as White Birch and Canoe Birch (Betula papyrifera).
“While a paper birch does not have a very high overall economic value, it is used in furniture, flooring, popsicle sticks and oriented strand board.
The sap is boiled down to produce birch syrup. Panels of bark can be fitted or sewn together to make cartons and boxes (a birchbark box is called a wiigwaasi-makakin the Anishinaabe language).
The bark is also used to create a durable waterproof layer in the construction of sod-roofed houses.”
