Thursday’s TREEvia Teaser

To help get the brain juices flowing in advance of our trivia event happening this Saturday, November 16th, at Outlaw Brewery in Southampton, here’s another warm-up question:

How many different species of tree are used when building a traditional birch bark canoe?

Three: White Birch for the skin, Eastern White Cedar for the gunnels, and Spruce roots and pitch to sew it all up and hold it together.
