weeping willow dead?


 Hi all,

I hope you can help? As you can see from the photo we have a weeping willow that may have died? However it does have a lot of growth and still growing on it's trunk. Any advice would be more than welcome.

Thank you

    Those things are grafted. The weeping bit at the top is dead and it's growing from below the rootstock. That won't be weeping

    Thank you for your reply nutcutlet.

     What's the best course of action now?

    Even when they're not exactly dead, those willows can get quite ugly and clumsy and  lopsided. We got rid of one this winter and the garden looks much better without it.
