is silver birch a protected species ?



No. Not unless it is subject to a tree protection order but I never heard of one that was.

Depends where you live - in some London boroughs, permission must be sought from the local authority for pruning or removal of any tree, regardless of variety.

If you are thinking of digging a tree up in the "wild", that can be dicey, legally. Better to contact the owner of the property and get permission, first.
