Mick's Willow Tree Problem
OK, so I've only been in the forum 2 minutes and I'm here with my first problem.
I planted a willow tree 2 years ago, wired and staked it straight for the first year. Last December we were hit by a terrible ice storm, our second in 12 months.
Quite a lot of our trees suffered damage, the willow was squashed virtually flat. Although it survived it now has quite a lean and I was wondering if it might be advisable to wire and stake it again in an attempt to pull it back straight. Or, would this cause more damage than good?
I've posted a couple of pictures at:
Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
