So tree selection question. I have so many sugar maples but I also noticed most recently that I have black birch trees.
I have read great things about the sap from these trees but that they are also delicate. I only have a few in my property.
Any suggestions on what method or 'materials' would kill the black birch?

My next walk with Ava I'll bring my phone so I can take a few pics just to make sure I have identified them right.
