EDITED 5/13/2019 for the 1.14.1 release. Once again accepting new applicants now that 1.14.1 has banished most of the horrible 1.14 lag!
Between villages numbered three, that is where you will be.
Come join us... under the gaze of the birch wood tree. Welcome to Eyes of Birch! Step into the shade and have a glass of lemonade. This won't take too long.
The second public reincarnation of a former small private server, Eyes of Birch aims to increase its player base while preserving in game tranquility and quaint atmosphere. Long term activity is sought, but the primary goal is to create a unique and enjoyable sense of community. We are playing the same vanilla game as many others, so what we need is a well mixed variety of spring peepers not unlike yourself. Prepare to apply, friend.
Freshly reset for the Village Update, our spawn in this world is located in a foresty plains biome situated between three thriving villages. There we have begun to settle a spawn town. Your help--or at least your touristic interest--would be greatly appreciated. You may roam as you wish and build wherever, within reasonable consideration of your fellow players. Below is a MineAtlas rendering of the spawn area:
This server was initially made for Discord friends across several Discord servers, and now we are grouped together on one specifically made for this Minecraft server. We voice chat fairly often, and are always happy to hear new voices, or see new typists. Let me know in the application or elsewhere if you want an invite link.
I won't lay down many solid rules, but rather trust you to understand the basics of a cooperative minecraft server. We all love vikings, pirates, and warlords, but please
do not engage in destroying, stealing, or killing without some sort of understanding between players. Generally, do not make the game unenjoyable for others. I'm sure most of you have been through this before. Also, around the spawn area at least, please fill creeper holes, finish off trees, and keep the three villages preserved. Thanks.
My in game name is IcedEmpyre. I am the owner and operator. My first version of Minecraft was beta 1.6, and I have been on numerous servers since then. If you have any questions, or suggestions about the game/server, feel free to contact me however you want. Players of all experience levels are welcome. Players below 18 are not likely to be accepted, but you could certainly try submitting an application along with the rest:

Would you like to join the associated discord server?:
We are looking to have some events in the future, including but not limited to boss fights, UHC, community builds, competitive mining, voice chats... I may acquire a dynmap, and perhaps switch to spigot for increased performance. There will not be any game changing plugins.
I will finish off with some quick info on the server:
Server Location: Montreal, Canada
Server type: Vanilla Minecraft Survival (1.14.1)
Whether beneath the hot desert sun, amidst the rolling ocean waves, sheltering from a high mountain blizzard, slinking through the dangerous night, or wherever else you might find yourself, I look forward to meeting you in game.
Hi everyone. I just completely rewrote the OP, and added a fancy new banner I created last night. I have accepted a few new players so far, who PMed me. Feel free to apply in comments, PMs, or anywhere else you can get to me, really. Thanks!
Oh and, we are probably going to fight the dragon next weekend.

Hello. We are back. Former players and new friends are lining up to join us for the 1.14 world reset and Eyes of Birch reopening. Feel free to apply as we are looking for at least a few additional players to populate our fresh map and join in on the fun.
Here are three screenshots from the new map. One each from the three villages surrounding spawn:
