Dappled Willow Pruning

Posted by sdeets Missouri (My Page) on

I have a dappled willow tree that I planted last year. It grew extremely well this year, but is very leggy. When and how often can I prune this tree? Spring, Fall or both? How far back can I cut it.

Thanks.

RE: Dappled Willow Pruning

Sorry your question didn't get answered Sue. Are you wanting to grow it as a tree or shrub? I don't have a dappled willow so I'd better not give any advice but I did find a pretty good website with pruning information. Hope it helps. My only willow is a dwarf arctic blue willow will which is starting to get a little bigger than I expected it to. I may be doing some pruning also.
