Silver Birch trees

Jo Arthur asked 12 years ago

I have about 11 silver birch trees planted down my driveway and have noticed that some are losing their leaves already and some leaves are turning brown, is this normal. I planted them earlier in the year and have been watering them regularly during the warm weather.

Birch trees often respond to warm dry weather by losing some of the inside leaves. It is generally not significant.

Watering is a waste of time unless given in large amounts, at least twenty litres per young tree but not more than once in five days.
