Are your beautiful birch trees looking stressed in the heat? Weather conditions this year have not been friendly to them. Many different species have been affected by dry conditions. Some trees are showing dieback or small leaves in just the top part of the tree, while others may appear to be dead or nearly so.
Check these important tips for birch trees and tree watering tips for drought conditions in the "Hot Topics" on the city's Forestry Division page at: www.bismarcknd.gov/Forestry.
