Birch Alternatives





As you may have noticed China Birch has sky-rocketed in price this past year. This is all due to anti-dumping (AD) and countervailing duties(CVD) imposed by the Department of Commerce. Prices on other products have become more desirable. Listed below are a few alternatives we have in limited quantities.




All products and prices are subject to prior sale. Prices are subject to change without notice based on availability.
