I have a clump River birch tree that I need to pull one of the three trunks about five inches farther away from my house where it rubs.

I don’t want to cut it down. What’s the best way? The clump River Birch Tree is about 25 years old and a beautiful addition to my yard. I am updating my patio and I’m afraid with the wind it one trunk will rub against the roof and damage the bark.

Here is information for pruning a river birch. It looks like you could prune out that branch from the photo. You may want to consult an arborist in your area or the local extension office beforehand.
