Is your Birch tree in decline? There are a number of reasons this could be happening. Many trees have been showing stress caused by drought. Drought effects can take years to catch up to trees and many of our Birch are showing evidence of this. Once a tree gets stressed out, it can make it more susceptible to secondary problems, including both pests and disease. Assuming your tree is still viable, we recommend fertilizing it to help promote health and vigor. We can also help diagnose the problem and see if any other treatment is appropriate.
