Many legends are associated With the black birch. One legend says that ten Russian guys, going to war, bid farewell to the sacred birch forest with their beloved. The girls promised to wait for their return. However, from the war returned only nine guys. And there were nine fun weddings. And only one woman remained lonely for life. She dressed in black robes and mourned her beloved. When she died, her soul moved into the birch in the sacred wood, and the tree turned black.
