4 Silver Birch Trees 6-8ft Tall in a 2L Pot

The plain silver or common birch, sometimes called 'the lady of the woods' because of its outstanding elegance, is a great landscape feature, especially in autumn and while still young - older trees can become enormous, but without dominating or shading the garden too much. When planted 60cm (2ft) apart, the trees make a fine hedge, or may be grown 2.4m (8ft) apart as a screen or windbreak, which can be trimmed each winter. Growth is upright, later slightly weeping, especially the young outer stems - trim shoots off the trunk to reveal the attractive bark

Deciduous trees shed their leaves as an active process that evolved to conserve resources and protect the tree from being blown over in the windier winter months. Some birch trees turn yellow due to temperature changes in the summer / early autumn. There is nothing to worry about. The trees will re-grow the foliage again in the spring time.

    Good trees. Would suggest some small net round root ball as it is difficult to get out of plastic pot without breaking root ball.The net would hold it together to ease planting.

    I was impressed by the way in which these trees were very carefully packaged - four trees in 2L pots packed in a single box and protected by a thick layer of straw and held firmly in place by connected canes. The trees were in perfect condition when I unwrapped them and had not been damaged in any way in transit. The soil in the pots was nicely damp and protected by cling film.
    The trees are now planted in the garden and I have every hope and expectation that they will burst into life in the coming Spring.
    Thank you for a very good and efficient service.
