Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
When it was young, this river birch attracted the attention of walkers. They would take a detour to admire its beauty close up. Its bark was smooth, clear, and a yellow-to-brownish colour. It was as thin as parchment, peeling apart and curled over on itself. Today, you have to look up to catch a glimpse of this particular bark. With age, the trunk has cracked deeply and is turning darker. People passing by brush against this tree without noticing. In Autumn, however, it does not go unnoticed when its foliage turns bright yellow.
