River birch is a tough and adaptable native tree that is also a popular landscape plant throughout the south. If you notice some of the leaves on your river birch have become thickened, distorted, or discolored in the last few weeks don’t be alarmed. While caused by a type of aphid, these symptoms are not a sign of serious damage and can even be an indication of good things to come to your yard.
