Weeping branches with diamond-shaped bright green leaves, which turn yellow in autumn. In early spring the tree is covered in attractive yellowy-brown catkins.

All the Betulas we supply are single-stemmed, but they can be planted close together to creat a multi-stemmed effect.
Birches dont need much pruning, but you may want to remove any diseased or crossing branches. It is essential that any pruning work is carried out between late summer to mid winter as the sap will 'bleed' heavily at other times. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting and stake well.
