Weeping Pussy Willow Has Some Darker Branches That Do Not Produce Leaves
Question From: Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
Q:I have a weeping pussy willow and some of the branches have turned darker than the other and don't produce leaves. Should I just cut them off?
Sounds like this might be a disease called willow canker. It can be lethal so I would get an onsite inspection from a certified arborist to assess the tree's condition and methods of control. To find one in your area go to www.tcia.org. and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
