Anthracnose and Wetwood are the two most common. Anthracnose can be spotted by small, irregular, circular, brown spots with dark brown edges. Wetwood is identified by a yellow-brown discoloration of the wood. The infected wood is much wetter than the surrounding wood and often drips a foul smelling slime.

The three most common birches grown on the prairies are the European weeping birch, the paper birch and the river birch. The insecticide should take care of any bug issues. The tree may have one of many fungal diseases that affect birch trees. Try spraying the tree with Daconil fungicide. Treat once and then re-treat in about 10 days.
