Did you know that…
The inner part of larch bark was used by some Alpine populations to make a flour for baking bread?
And that birch bark was used by some populations to make waterproof containers?
Bark is the protective surface of a tree and is also the part we can touch, which we come into contact with when we brush against a trunk or hold a branch. Bark can tell us a lot. For example it can indicate which plant species we are dealing with.
There are trees with a smooth surface, some have a rough surface, and others have a deeply grooved surface. How do you tell them apart?
