Birch trees in Delaware are usually found along streams and ponds, and are easily identified by their curling bark. Very hardy, birches can thrive in a wide range of conditions; therefore, they are often planted in urban areas and wetlands. Birch seeds can be eaten by wildlife. While some birches have wood with close-grained properties that are valued for furniture and flooring, this is not true of river birch.
Birch leaves are usually oblong with pointed, sharp-toothed edges. Birch beer is a popular carbonated drink made from the bark.
