He explains that a paste is made by grinding its leaves, flowers and branches, which helps in curing joint pain, arthritis and headache. The leaves and stem of white birch tree contain phenolic acid, from which HIV medicines are made. Due to which it is considered very important in the manufacturing of allopathic medicines.

Reason for blooming of white birch in low lying areas
Rana says that due to the blooming of Buransh in spring, children use its flowers during Phulari (flower festival), due to which it is very good for traditional medicine, cultural, religious and also for the environment. Meanwhile, VP Bhatt, Professor of Botany at Shivanand Nautiyal Government Post Graduate College, tells PressNews24 that sometimes due to some reasons, the seeds of white gourd reach the lower places. Due to different environmental setup, there is morphological change in the first and second generation of its tree.
