Here’s a quick update on the progress of the Set C downy birches. I took the photographs this evening (Day 1160). All twelve trees are looking healthy and they’ve all come nicely into leaf.
I didn’t measure the trees this time around because they’ve not really started this year’s growth yet. To see how they looked in November, and to see a list of all their heights then, check out the last Set C downy birch update.

I’ve left it a stupidly long time since the last one, but here’s the latest update on all thirteen Set C(r) rowans (excluding the tricots, which I haven’t shown on treeblog in an even looonger time, but which will make an appearance soon). I took the photos on Tuesday – Day 1113 – just over three years since I planted the rowans as seeds. The last update was in May of last year on Day 720.
U2 – Tiny. Along with U7, this seedling has the same mildew-type affliction that affected the majority of the Set C(r) rowans last year.
U5 – healthy but tiny.
U7 – tiny and suffering from the mildew-type disease.
U14 – the tallest tree in the set, measuring a whopping 67 cm tall.
W2 – another tall one.
W6 – kind of average.
W7 – I think the the two little branches sprouting from near the base have died.
W11 – another tall one, with a suppressed second stem.
W12 – a little smaller than average.
W15 – pleasing to look at.
W17 – has the leafiest stem.
W18 – kind of average.
W19 – doesn’t look very sturdy, and one tiny branch has a bit of that mildewy stuff, but otherwise looks healthy.
I also measured the heights of all thirteen rowans. They are ranked in descending order in the table below:
