  • Waterproofing and light sealing (seams on boots or clothes, canoe no)
  • Ointment
  • Staining
  • Leather treatment and waterproofing
  • Traditionally used on Scandinavian green roofs

Birch tar imparts a smoky and wintergreen type scent to anything it touches, it will also darken what you are using it on so do a test if uncertain.
