    Asian White Birch - Truly Borer Resistant?

    I really like White Birch trees. Here in Virginia where I live, we have them, but it seems the European White Birch and the Paper Birch don't last long or even look too good without extreme pampering and a rigorous spraying regimen.

    Has anyone out there had much experience with the Asian White Birch? I've heard it's resistant to borers.

    I want some White Birches, but I want trees that will flourish without a lot of spraying.

    I appreciate your comments. Thanks!

    RE: Asian White Birch - Truly Borer Resistant?

    They're not resistant to the bronze birch borers. Also, Virginia is becoming far too hot to attempt to grow northern species like white birch. They'll be so stressed from the heat that they'll be open to all sorts of insects, mites, borers, etc. that may happen along. In Virginia you should probably concentrate on trees for very hot areas such as sourwood.
