Tips for Healthy Birch Trees
In the fall, few trees rival the beautiful birch with its white trunk and golden leaves. However, these trees are not without their challenges. Keeping your birch trees in tiptop shape means you need to give them more care than other varieties of trees. There are a few steps you can take to try to ensure your birch trees are as healthy as they are gorgeous. The USDA recommends paying close attention to the following to give your birch tree the best chance for a long, healthy life:
- Pick the proper planting location
- Proper pruning and trimming
- Pest management
- Healthy soil
Additionally, depending on which birch tree you choose, you may have to maintain a pest control regimen. White-barked birch trees, for instance, are more susceptible to the bronze borer, an infesting insect that will quickly degrade your birch trees. The birch trees species without white bark (Heritage River, River, Sweet and Yellow) are much more resistant to this invasive pest.

Perhaps the birch tree seems like high maintenance and too difficult to handle on your own. Fortunately, our professional arborists at Keil Tree Experts are here for you.
