Hi Nice and simple tree. If the attempt is to create a weeping style as your last pic shows, IMHO you might not succeed as the leaves and their size will play spoilsport....

A very tricky species to do well with, as they abort branches unpredictably. They are relatively short lived too. A careful eye must be kept on watering, as it is one of those "I dry, I die" trees. You've made a very nice start. I hope this one behaves well for you.

Thanks Kev
Yes, the birch trees tend to drop branches. Dry, they may never be.

What time of year do you prune? I know birches dieback easy, but it looks like you have had success.

I cut the branches back in the summer easily. Thick branches only in winter Wink

Hi

Very nice tree, I recently bought a starter tree, and there aren't that many examples to go by....
Would just like to ask what size both your old and new tree are?

Thanks
Gerhard

Hi Jupp

Thanks, as I suspected quite a bit larger than my starter......just like all the best ones I've seen so far.

Cheers
