A neighbor has a river birch planted with yellow leaves (we've got a lot of limestone in the backyard).

Will the chlorosis shorten the life of the tree? The tree looks healthy otherwise. I was thinking of planting one until I realized that its foliage should be a darker green.

Thanks.

How long ago was it planted?
In my experience a lot of Birches in the area will have yellow during the first years planted in these parts, then once they're established, if they get plenty of water they're fine. Just keep in mind Birches like to grow next to water, they're thirstier than our local oaks and such.
