Hello, I received several bare root Silver Birch trees yesterday and they're all covered in crusty white spots. Some areas look like burst pustules. Does anyone know what this is? I'm worried that it may be a disease or a fungus and if so would you advise that I complain to the supplier and return the trees? Thank you
Plant them out asap.
Whatever it is the best chance your trees have is if they are planted and getting fresh air and sunshine so their roots and leaves can grow.
Let us know how they get on
So far as I can see, the small dots on the bark are quite normal. Lenticels are features on every plant, sometimes on the stem, sometimes on the fruit, which enable the exchange of gases.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
