Betula papyrifera (Paper Birch or Canoe Birch) This one is in my Neighbour's yard and is amazing. The tree branches go into my yard, and I feel lucky to have it do so. I used just the trunks here so people can understand what is used to make the canoe. It is lit at night with flood lights.
For the Non Canadians that read this, These trees are what the Birch Bark Canoe was made from.
