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.

    Dealing with you guys was a breeze, you answered my enquiries swiftly and assuringly.
    I actually thought the trees would be a somewhat 'fatter' but that is me being a little naive.
    I was somewhat surprised they arrived four, in a long box, packed with straw, but they were perfectly fine.
    They are now in the ground, in their new home, and I along with the garden birds are already enjoying them. I Would and will, at any opportunity recommend you guys in the future. Thank you.
