Some twenty years ago, a previous owner planted seven silver birch trees in front of our house [see pofile picture]: two behind the beech hedge are already dead; two look very sad and three are struggling on - the two against the house seem to be slightly happier. I have removed one dead tree and am about to remove the other.
Does anyone have any recommendations for replacements? I was thinking of putting three columnar prunus amanogawa (Japanese cherry) trees in place of the trees behind the beech hedge.
We live 2km from the sea and the wind is generally from the south west and regularly quite strong.
