Ecology and Phytosociology

A pioneer tree found in boggy soil during the draining process, it can adapt to a more northerly climate than Betula verrucosa. Drains moderately wet soil. This tree’s characteristics naturally make it a pioneer of expanding wet woodlands, or evidence of the deteriorating forest, before once again becoming a pioneer of the heath, allowing other species to return.

Indications for Use

  • Stimulates catabolism (e.g., urea, cholesterol, uric acid) through its macrophagic effect (Kupffer liver cells) on the detoxifying function of the liver.
  • Complementary to Alnus glutinosa, particularly for treating inflammatory conditions which have a more chronic course (e.g., pleurisy).
  • Also boosts Alnus glutinosa in a similar manner in thrombotic conditions, treating sequelae lasting six months to a year, by stimulating local histiocytes. While Alnus glutinosa acts on intravasculaire thrombi, Betula pubescens is better for regulating vascular wall phenomena.
  • Stimulates the reticuloendothelial system.
  • In association with 1% essential oil, buds in D1 potency have a positive effect on gouty conditions.


  • Cytological: Stimulates Kupffer liver cells. Stimulates bone marrow mast cells.
  • Coagulatory: Mild antithrombophilic action.
