The availability of yellow birch has diminished over the past few years. At that time, a large ice storm hit the Northeastern United States and extended far into Quebec, Canada. The sub-zero temperatures combined with the damage by ice buildup killed off a large number of yellow birch trees. Only recently, has yellow birch been harvested again. This means that reliable sources of yellow birch are few and should increase in time. We will continue to try and locate reliable sources and make it available through this site.
