Our Fascination with Birch Trees

I’m not really sure what it is about this tree that has earned our admiration. Perhaps we like how the stark whiteness stands out against a forest full of grey and brown tree trunks. Or maybe it’s the fine lines that are jotted along the bark like sheet music or Morse code. Perhaps it’s the way the layers of bark peel away into curly ribbons or the pages of an old book.

Whatever the reason, I always feel something when I see a Birch tree.
