Hi Maeve, I, too love Silver Birches and they are the perfect tree for estates as they are beautiful all year round and don't cast a heavy shade. I have planted quite a few....as for Whitebeam, what a lovely tree it is in the spring, but I think it starts to look really messy in very early autumn and dies back in quite an ugly fashion, which is a shame.

Tipben, thank you for that information about the larch disease.....how very sad, for they are wonderful trees. I am intrigued by the idea of a mulberry tree, and will definitely think about getting one when our shelter belt has grown a bit more. Our acre is still very windy......and can't imagine a mulberry liking that.
