Q.Will My White Birch Grow After Wind Damage?

Zone Kilkenny, Ireland | Anonymous added on May 24, 2021 | Answered

I planted some young birch trees last autumn which were about 6 feet tall, shortly after there was some very strong winds and unfortunately the main stem in some of the trees snapped at the top even though they were supported with stakes. I had to remove the damaged part with a secateurs and I am worried that this may have permanently damaged the tree and its ability to grow tall. Do you have any advice ?
