I am hoping to purchase a European White Birch (Monrovia) at my local nursery. They were unable to tell me if it is bore resistant. I am hoping it is because it is 40% off !!! Thank you for this opportunity to relay this question to you.

Unfortunately, European white birch (Betula pendula) and paper birch (Betula papyrifera) are among the most preferred hosts for the bronze birch borer. The river birch (Betula nigra) is relatively resistant. I hope this answers your question.
