Birch trees need water and some shade for there best growth, many birches
planted in the land scape die over a couple of years because they lack
water-do not plant in dry sandy or clay soil-do water offten when it is
 When a tree is week it may be infested with the birch bore and a sever
infestation may kill the tree-look for small swellings on the trunks or
for round holes about a 1/5 th of an inch in size.- If you have the bore
the best treatment is to make the tree as healthy as you can -give it a
lot of water.
