As the weather is still hot and steamy I have left the leaves on for protection. Is there a chance the weeping birch will survive?

There is every chance your scorched birch will survive if you water the tree well during warm weather. To reduce stress apply Yates Waterwise DroughtShield, which works like sunscreen to help protect your tree. Prolonged exposure to the sun will still result in burning, but the effects will be reduced by spraying with Yates Waterwise DroughtShield. Don't be too concerned about removing the burnt foliage as these leaves offer protection; the tree will naturally abort these leaves in the next few months.
