If you notice the top of your birch tree is dead or dying, your tree is most likely infested with the dreaded Bronze Birch Borer.
The bronze birch borer will kill your birches if you don't act to stop it. We use a pesticide that is inserted into each tree, thus avoiding a spray or ground treatment that may bother pets or children. We will remove the deadwood, also, to help improve the tree's health.
If a birch is 30% dead, or more, it should be removed.
