i have been cutting some trees that a farmer pushed down in a waterway and initially thought they were birch. it seems that every picture of a birch tree is completely white from the bottom to top, these trees have brown bark near the bottom... please help

Without any pictures to work from, all I can do is supply you with a couple of possibilities: white poplar or quaking aspen.
Sometimes sycamore can have a predominance of mottled, white bark.
