Gray birch is a tiny tree that grows to be 20 to 30 feet tall. In comparison to River Birch, the bark is greyish white with little exfoliation. The leaves are triangular with a thin tip and are double serrated, with a pale yellow fall colour. Within a year, the branches become reddish brown, and a dark V-shaped area forms just below. Gray birch will thrive in even the most arid conditions. Spools and barrel hoops are made from its wood.
