So the new neighbors just moved in to find a nice 18' plus white birch blown over with the roots poking up a bit in the middle of the overgrown back lawn.

He rescued it by standing it up and placing some large rocks around the base. It's still rather droopy and I'd like to help it not die as its a beautiful tree! He is renting so I don't know how the landlords would feel about replacing it with a fruiting tree, so that's that. I offered to bring over some stakes and pole poUnder to hold till the roots get as strong as they should be.

My other though is trimming it back and maybe feeding some vitamin b12 or asprin- homemade rooting hormone juice.
 
This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. Now it's a tiny ad:
