Birch
Birches are divided into 3 types: white, black, and yellow. All birch trees thrive where conditions are sunny and the soil is well drained, somewhat sandy but high in organic nutrients. Birch leaves are usually wedge-shaped to nearly triangular, with coarse teeth along the edges.  Mature height of these trees can reach 12 to 18 meters. The roots will spread to a distance of at least twice the tree's height. The Birch was used to flavor beers and sweets.
