I planted 3 golden treasure dwarf birch shrubs 5/2021. They get about 4 hrs morning sun. All look totally woody with only a few leaves on top.

The leaves look spotty, like they have a fungal infection. The best thing you can do is prevent it next year. Clean up all the fallen leaves and dispose of them in the trash. Water from below; avoid wetting the leaves. The soil looks pretty dry, so you may want to increase the water.

The shrub prefers part shade. So if you have it in full shade you may want to move it.
