Northern Yellow Birch Flooring

Grades & Specs | Solid Plank Prices | Engineered Plank Prices

Birch trees are among the most northern growing of all deciduous trees. They are distinctive for their thin peeling bark and are often found in a purely decorative use. There are many sub-varieties but the primary tree used for lumber and flooring is the Yellow Birch.

Depending on the grade, Birch can range from a deep red to a creamy white with a faint grain and a lustrous sheen. Birch is a strong durable wood with an overall light color and is an excellent choice for flooring in any decorative design.

CountryPlank.com offers Birch flooring in two grades and styles.
