Weeping willow

Posted by MIchelle , Apr 20,2006,22:31       Forum

I have a weeping willow, planted 4 years ago. It is about 10 feet high, not too full. Last year after it greened up nicely, then leaves began turning yellow & the tips of the hanging limbs started to die. This spring we had to remove a large chunk on the top that was dead. Now another section that started to bud has turned brown & looks dead. The rest of the trees leaves are looking yellow again. We are in middle Tennessee & have clay soil. I water regularly in the summer usually weekly. What could be causing these problems and how can I prevent furhter loss?
Thnka you!
