There are close to 60 different species of birch that grow in temperate climate around the world. Birch usually grows near the lakes and rivers making it one of the most popular trees known to nature-lovers. Birch is also loved because of its pioneer species designation, easily populating habitats destroyed by fire. Here the birch trees are skillfully etched across the thick steel buckle. This is a sturdy buckle that will surprise you with its quality.
Buckle is 3" x 2" and will work with any belt that is made for a buckle. Cedar Lake also carries quality leather belts that are perfect for the etched buckles. Belts sold separately.
