Gray birch

The gray birch is the smallest of the birch trees found in the northeastern United States. It grows principally in New York and New England, but ranges from New Brunswick southward through Delaware. Birch trees are characterized by a smooth bark that often peels off in thin, papery layers and becomes thick, deeply furrowed, and scaly. Birch trees have attractive bark and foliage and often are used as landscape plants.
