Silver Birch have a relatively short life span, often found naturally on
sandstone ridges and integrated with Pendunculate Oak and Scots Pine, they
do
well. For a small garden, they tend to be less dominant dedpending on the
other
trees in the garden, but add extreme grace, they are one of the finest, but
less obtrusive of species. They react to pruning well, however, their
natural
form would be spoilt (certainly as a single specimen). At 10m, the tree is
unlikely to dominate much more. Try to appreciate the form, pruning for
pruning
sake will only cause problems.
