Birch Trees
Q.

my silver birch tree

Zone London U.K | livlivesey added on July 18, 2017 | Answered

I planted this about 13 years ago so about 30 ft now I suppose. This year it's driving me mad by dropping MILLIONS of seeds which I've never noticed before. Is this because it's not been so prolific before or because it's only just started producing them ? There's lots of catkins which the parakeets like to eat but I can't do anything about that !!!! Am wondering if it's only this year that catkins have started being produced ?

This is just part of the normal growing process for the tree. Some years may have more seeds then others.
