Hope the image isn't too big.
New to this site but hoping someone can tell me how I can sort this beast out?
Can I cut it right back hoping it'll grow again or will I need to trim it?
I want to say coppice it but I'm not sure that's the right term.
Some pictures of the leaves too in case someone can tell me what it is!
Maybe it's a poplar? Does it ever flower?
Looks like Salix caprea, goat willow to me
Cppice is cut it all to just above ground level and would be a suitable way to go. It will grow back as a multi-stemmed shrub
And here's one I made earlier......
The nights are drawing in.
I have a couple of trees like yours . Grew them from a packet of mixed perennial seeds. Didn't know they'd be trees! Have to keep them heavily pruned, so no clues blossom-wise. It's great to know what they are. Thanks.
,the leaves look a bit like a fruit tree but I don't think it is one ,, very strange maybe a willow ... hey it you may have a new undiscovered tree , a hybrid of sort it happens don't laugh
So it looks like my trees a goat willow and I can coppice it. Any tips on how best to do this and when? My plan is to just take it down to a stump in the next few weeks.
