Mulching and proper watering are vital to River Birch success.
I also garden in the great state of MN. I'm afraid I have had numerous friends lose their River Birch trees with them not having a very good lifespan in their yards.
I do believe the harsh winters are very hard on this tree.
Here is a great link with good care instructions.
