Took down a big dead beech and this birch was a casualty. I think it's one of the heaviest woods I've handled. It has a nice color to it, smelled amazing. The pale stuff is some sugar I had. Didn't know what to do with any of it, so I just riftsawn it all. 16ft and the maple is about 15ft. Havta go back and seal the ends. I let the trailer sit for the night before moving it Into the shed the next day and the tires were buried in the ground!
