In youth, the papery bark peels off easily. It is thin, yet tough, and has in fact been used as paper in the past. As the tree grows older the bark begins to form a layer of cork that provides excellent insulation and protects the tree against the cold. The bark does not have to be harvested from live trees. Because of the remarkable preservative properties of birch bark, it can be harvested from dead or fallen trees.
