    I did peel the bark off a trunk of cut birch. It was peeling very well like fruit. It was very watery inside of the trunk.
    I left the peel in the shed. I am afraid that mouse will be attracted to them to chew.

    I didn't know wood warm is geographical problem?

      The sugar content of birch sap is quite high.
      Very attractive to small rodents and insect larvae ( wood borers).
      From time to time., look at the fresh wood surface.
      It could become moldy very quickly.
      All I ever did was to dry-wipe the moldy surface with a cloth.

        Yes, we have spotted rodent droppings in the shed, and are so much horrified, that we installed some pest repellent powered by mains.
        Removed the birches from the shed to indoors, they are lying in the spare bathroom now.
