Hi I'm new here.
I need help with a sick/dying willow. The tree is about 4 years old and this year has gotten little black spots on the trunk and seems to be always dry. It's a battle to keep the leaves on it. It used to be very full and now it's sparse.
Can someone help me with this?
Sharon

Hi Sharon and to the GardenStew forums. Very Happy

Here are two websites that deal with pests and diseases in willows. I hope they help you out.

Hi Sharon and welcome to the "Stew"

Is it only a problem this year? Has there been any change in the willow tree's immediate environment? I'm not exactly sure about Texas but have you been having unusually high temperatures? This information would help us further.

Any photos you could provide as well would be equally helpful.

Hello Sharon and Welcome!! I'm sorry but I don't know anything about willow trees!! All of my plants have suffered terribly with all the hot temperature and little rainfall. Frank is probably on to something there!!

The heat has been horrible this year. You and I live around the corner from each other. I live in Navasota...not far from Bryan/College Station.
I'll try to get some pictures this weekend. I'll take closeups of the trunk and the overall tree.
