Another tree that is very common in forests near me is the Paper Birch. This one is a particularly small one located within the boundaries of Wilcox Park. Paper Birches tend to grow best in rockier areas and newer forests. In addition to an elevation range of 1,000-3,000 ft. I really enjoy the lighter color of this bark and I feel that it's name fits the tree well.
