Even when back-lit, the White Birch stands out in a crowd of young maples and oaks, but without their protection, this birch would have surely fallen years ago. No wonder it is the State Tree of New Hampshire, it is truly beautiful. To think the Native Americans used the inner bark to eat in harsh times. The trees can be tapped like a maple and the sap is said to be the sweetest of all.
