White Birch ~ Betula papyrifera

This White or Paper Birch would be found on what was once a forest edge near the edge of the road, to the right of the main entrance of the school. White birch is native to North America and can commonly be found in terrestrial habitats, deciduous and mixed evergreen-deciduous forests, and sometimes in wetlands. What I like about this species is its thin and smooth white bark. It sticks out so much due to its white bark, especially when it's peeling and has some ornamental value.
