Q.One Of My Silver Birch Trees Is In Limbo
Hello I have three 10 year old solver birch trees all in a row. One however seems suspended in time whilst the other two are in full flourish. It has had buds for about 5 weeks but won’t progress to leaf. It’s not brittle so assuming not dead? Can you tell me why this is? ?

It is possible that this one receives a slightly different amount or duration of light than the others. Sometimes, it is completely normal, though.
It does look healthy, so I wouldn't worry unless you see signs of distress.
I would say that if it doesn't come out, in a month or so, you could try feeding with a slow release fertilizer to give it a little help.
