Yellow Birch

The yellow birch contains all the natural variation that you will see from the birch tree. A closed-grained, even-textured cream, or light brown hardwood with lustrous brown flecks and warm undertones, this species is similar to maple in grain but with more color and depth. The elegance of a yellow birch floor is further accentuated with a dark stain.
