The Aspen Birch is part of Grand Canyon Gas Logs three native collections. The Aspen Birch logs are cast from real logs found in nature and then hand painted to bring to life the natural beauty. Like the Arizona Juniper collection the logs for the Aspen Birch were discovered in the backwoods of the Northern Arizona Forest. The name Quaking Aspen comes from the appearance of the Aspen tree when the wind is blowing. The leaves of the tree are attached to the branches with a long petiole; this allows even the faintest of breezes to cause the leaves to flutter. The fluttering effect gives the appearance that the Aspen is “Quaking” or “Trembling” hence the name Quaking Aspen. The detail in the casting and painting by our craftsman are second none.
