I don't think all birch is created equal. I've had enough yellow birch, and it seems to behave as most other hardwoods.graycatman said:A current thread suggests that white birch may rot quicker than other hard woods. Is the same true of black birch? Also, does black birch season well in one year c/s/s, or does it need more like 2-3 years like oak? Thanks for your advice.
