Silver birch is such a lovely tree, but there are many different varieties. How about trying the weeping one, which can be pruned back to a sort of umbrella shape? Be sure and research, as some varieties grow very tall indeed.
I didn't mind keep picking up my loquat tree each time it went over, but in the end it broke the very expensive big pot it was planted in. Enough was enough, but I do miss it!
