Getting rid of bare branches

Asked April 16, 2020, 10:46 PM EDT

Planted a young 12 foot dura heat birch tree. Lots of branches are bare while others have sprouted leaves. Should I cut the bare branches off?

Test the branches to see if they are brittle and dead. If so, you should cut them off. Be sure to water the tree. River birches need lots of water.
