The mushroom has a hard texture that can be dried, powdered, and used to make Chaga tea, extracts, tinctures or the powder is packed into capsules for use as a dietary supplement. Generally found growing on birch trees, it has also been found on alder, beech, oak and poplar. In species other than birch, the fungus often appears as buried stem canker, instead of the charcoal-like mass found on birch trees
