I Am Looking at Buying a Kitchen Table and It Is Made of Birch. Is This a Good Wood for a Kitchen Ta

Birch is a hard wood and it is very durable!

1. Are there any preservations on cutting down Silver Birch Trees?

Are Silver Birch Trees Protected

2. How can you trim a weeping white bark birch without killing it or a large section of the tree?

Trimming Birch Trees

3. Black Knot - can this spread to Birch trees?

No - it wo not spread to your birch trees. It only affects plum and cherry trees...and of those, some species are more susceptible than others. No, it can not be cured. You need to prune out the infected parts as soon as you see them. Looking at the plants in the winter, when they are dormant with no leaves, makes it easier to see the affliction. Take with you a bucket of water with a few tablespoons of bleach. Dip your pruners in the solution between each cut, to minimize the possibility of transferring the bacteria with your tool. Cut about 6 inches or more BELOW the visible infection, to make sure you've cut it back to completely healthy wood. Being vigilant is the only treatment available. Some have reported that spraying the whole tree with fungicides in the spring (when the spores take wing) helps slow the spread. But as the disease is a bacteria and not a fungus, that probably has something to do with the mixed results. Removing any affected wild plums in the vicinity will help.

4. New growth on river birch appears to be burnt?

Sounds like a touch of frost to me. If you can still see some green further on in the bud, than I think it will bounce back. Good luck

5. What wood grain best matches or accompanies birch?

Maple. It's hard to tell the difference

6. Growing paper birch from seeds?

Normally they need a period of cold or stratification, but you can accelerate their growth with the use of grow lamps. Sow the seeds on the surface of wet seed starting medium such as Jiffy-mix and cover with a sheet of glass or plastic. Expose to 24 hour fluorescent light 12" above the tray for 9 days. Alternate light/dark in 12 hour cycles for the next 7-10 days. Ventilate the tray when germination starts. Do not let the seeds dry out during this treatment or they will die. Keep the seed tray at 65-80F until germination. Once the majority of the seeds have germinated move to 55-75F. Keep moist and well ventilated. Fertilize with 1/4 strength 20-20-20 water soluble fertilizer at every watering. When two sets of true leaves have appeared transplant to individual pots. Grow on for 6 weeks in light shade after transplanting. Move into I gallon pots of good quality compost potting mix. Move to full sun keep watered. Trees should be 12-20" tall at the end of the first year. In the second year transfer into 5 gallon containers in early spring.

7. Do you think Fox TV has ties to the old John Birch Society?

Although I do not technically agree with what you are saying, I do think unleashing all their venom on Obama will incite some crazy person to violence. They make Obama out to be evil incarnate and I think it's criminal because some really stupid, vicious, violent person or group could assassinate him as a result of what they've instigated. Yes, Limbaugh and Fox are nothing short of criminal with their lies and innuendo. People do not have the right to scream "Fire!" in a crowded theater. Nor should anyone have the right to complete character assassination without substantiation. They say anything and everything and there's no independent agency calling them to task for their lies and when they are not lying they are engaging in innuendo. Like I said, it's a crime not only against obama but society as well.

8. Are these birch or aspen trees?

Turns out this is harder than it seems from just the picture...The three candidates I think one could most argue for are:Here is a picture of Populus tremuloides from the USDA:Notice the smoothness of the above Aspen bark (identical to that of the picture in the OP's question). Now compare it to the peely nature of typical birch bark (here pictured B. papyrifera or paper birch):Though not all birch species have peely bark: (my emphasis below) Here are images of European white birch (left) and gray birch (right) :But Gray birch remains smooth, even at the base of the tree (though see here)...Pay attention to the bottom of the trees in the OP's picture. The bark at the base of the trees is becoming furrowed:Zoomed in OP picture: This base furrowing is a characteristic of P. tremuloides:Here is a close-up of furrowed aspen bark from the USDA website (yes, this is still aspen):However, this furrowing can also occur in paper birch. I will comment that I have never seen paper birch with furrowed bark at the base. Further, I was unable to find visual evidence from any reputable sources by searching on Google. So what about tree shape and form?Again, according to The Sibley Guide to Trees:Citing a different source (Field Guide to Trees of North America) to address different language to differentiate the species:The smaller trees in the front left of the OP's picture demonstrate a more birch-like architecture and have branches growing along the stem as the description for B. papyrifera describes. These qualities are reduced or eliminated in the larger trees in the OP's picture.For visual clarification, the typical pyrimidal crown shape of P. tremuloides is shown below (from Oregon State Department of Horticulture). The trees in this image appear more slender (pyrimidal) than the trees in the OP's image, but aspen trees can also have "round" crowns as stated above. The following photo from Michigan State University Extension's Tree ID Key attempts to demonstrate a difference between paper birch and aspen crown coloration: The crown branches/twigs visible in the OP's picture seem to be lighter colored, and so this line of evidence points to aspen. Ok, so what about size? According to Field Guide to Trees of North America the typical sizes of the species under question are fairly similar, but with gray birch being smaller than the other two species:The relative sizes of the trees in the OP's picture do not seem to preclude any of these species.Both birches and aspens develop yellow leaves in autumn, so this characteristic additionally is not useful for differentiating the two genera (or 3 species). the OP's image is far too zoomed out to make out any lenticels (even when zooming into the OP's picture). Those black spots are not lenticels; they are scars (generally from lost limbs). Regardless, other species (including some aspen species) also develop lenticels.Here is a close-up of lenticels. The little slits are birch lenticels (here from B. papyrifera): Names on files and webpages are notoriously incorrect so using that as a line of evidence is dangerous. I saw a number of misidentified species in pictures while I was searching myself.So thus far it seems as though aspen is a pretty good choice, but paper birch could also be potentially correct. The distance of the picture makes this distinction difficult, but I will point to the two lines of evidence that have convinced me that some of the trees are in fact paper birches. Conclusion = Hard to tell, and likely actually a mix of Paper Birch (Betula papyrifera) and Quaking Aspen (Populus tremuloides). I think you are looking at taller aspen and mostly wider paper birch.

How Do I Stain/paint Ikea Birch Wardrobe Pieces Ebony?
If you are feeling adventurous you could try spraying on a tinted top coat, that way you could achieve the ebony(ish) color and preserve the grain pattern. Its a tricky technique and it must be sprayed but it can be done. There are a few variations but in general you add 10-20% dye stain to a finish like urethane or lacquer and spray on enough coats to get the color saturation you are after. Prep the surface as described by Steven and then apply an un-tinted clear sealer coat (my personal preference is Zinser's shellac based sealer). Sand with 280 and then add two coats of your tinted top coat, spraying in different directions (left to right then up to down). If it requires more coats, sand with 320-400 and continue on, sanding every few coats. If you have to let it sit for an extended period between coats (more than a day) be sure to sand to promote adhesion1. Allergies to birch pollen--Apple, Pear peels?stay away from foods that cause symptoms, keep your epi pen & benedryl handy, and see your allergist2. Why Birch reduction of alkyne is E-selective?It's not rotation but inversion (remember amine lone pair inversion) from a linear $sp$ form to trigonal planar $sp^2$ that occurs. Lone pair and radical electron are held close to atom and repulse each other a lot so stable to keep them in anti dihedral positions. If the lone pair next to a radical electron was less repulsive, then it would have a lower energy transition state and be more readily formed according to Hammond's Postulate. But experimental data indicates that that is not the case.Picture Citation: Kurti (2019)3. Where can i purchase a lighted birch branch tree?Can you get them or rent them from your florist? If you can just purchase 2 trees from a garden center you could light them yourself for far less than a pre-lit tree would cost and then you could plant them in your yard as symbols of your new life together ( = The tubs or buckets would be easy to hide in a large fish pot or with some tulle or a clever box. Good luck! Just saw your edit. I guess that wo not work if you want fiber optic. Sorry!4. How does the Tea Party movement differ from the John Birch movement?Teabaggers are much more hip and modern5. I had a wine at Legal Seafoods in Boston, made by Silver Birch World Wines.Anyone know where I can get it?If you are in Ontario then go to the LCBO and see if they have it or can order it for you. If they do not have it I do not know who will as the LCBO is the largest importer of wine in the world.6. What does 1/2" 4x8 Birch Lumber mean?Yes, it does look like that - however matters do not seem to be consistently as they look. I will reply this at the foundation that possibly you do wish to make touch. GOD is not a character, however is an vigor (that's LOVE). GOD is the whole lot round us, EVERYTHING. You must point out that you simply wish touch first - that is the best way the procedure works. That is your unfastened will, which they (any non secular beings) wo not over experience. The approach to denote you wish touch is to LOVE the whole lot, all people round you. When you do that, you are loving GOD. It will then be again to you, and you are going to step by step have conversation with all that exists. The extra LOVE you supply out, the faster your growth will probably be. Actually you may have been getting a few messages in a form of approaches to check out and get you to activity your unfastened will and recognize that you simply wish this touch - however you have not been competent to understand it. It has been past your PRESENT know-how. "Let people who have ears, pay attention and people who have eyes, see" LOVE and Peace to all, peacefromken7. Leaves are turning yellow on my new River Birch Tree?You may be over-watering the tree. I've had this happen with a couple of trees and when I removed them to replant them I noticed there was a pool of water in the hole I removed the tree from. Planting trees too deeply and/or over-watering them are common problems. Until the roots can grow and spread in the native soil (and not the soil utopia they grow in at a nursery) you have to be careful. Poorly drained soils (especially clays) can act as a bucket when you dig a hole in them. The water fills that bucket in the soil and saturates your tree's roots and then they are starved for air and the leaves begin to yellow. Try check the soil around the tree at different depths too see if it's saturated.
