White Birch Bark and Twig Mosaic

The outer bark skin is peeled from mature White Birch logs as they are being harvested for lumber production. The bark sheets are then flattened and dried.

Typical applications include:

Bark sheets are generally available in sizes from 12" x 12" to as large as 3' x 4', and in a vast array of colors and textures. Generally the larger sheets tend to be darker in color and have a coarser surface. Small sheets range towards a more stark white with less surface "character".

Typically, bark is applied by first adhering to plywood with contact cement or panel adhesive. Generally the joints are then covered using small diameter (1/2" to 1 1/2") Birch or Alder twigs either in full or half rounds, using brass brads or screws.

Birch/Alder Twig
Birch twig is most commonly used to trim out or outline mosaic patterns that have been created with White Birch Bark on rustic furniture and decoratives, or as wall and paneling applications. It is obtained from the harvesting of very young saplings or from the top branches of mature trees. It occurs in an array of colors ranging from golden yellow to deep red.
