In Celtic cultures The Birch tree symbolises initiation, renewal, growth, stability and adaptability. The tree populates formerly uncolonized land and is known as a "pioneer species". From the Ogham alphabet "Beithe".

Birch

The Chinese honor the birch and give it the attributes of protection, communication and rejuventation.

Ancient Siberians hail Birch as sacred, they called it "the ladder that spanned the gap between heaven & earth. 

Birch is used as firewood due to its high calorific value per unit weight and unit volume. Even when frozen or freshly cut it can burn well without sparking or popping. Designated as a Hardwood by the Forestry Commission trees can often reach 200 years although grown commercially for use within the industry it is sustainable with most crops being 40-50 years old.  Many Native Americans prize the birch for its bark which can be used in construction of wigwams, canoes and bowls as it is very light weight and easy to manipulate.
