Contorted willow


By Holsown

I have an 8 year old contorted willow, grown from a cutting and now about 15ft tall. Recently (May 2012) it is dropping it's leaves. I live in Hertfordshire. Please advise.



Mine drops leaves due to wind damage and lack of water (actually droops first for lack of water). I think it was the wind. I have wind burn damage on lots of trees.

Thank you for that, I think you are probably right about the wind, but after all the rain we had in April, I wouldn't think it was lack of water, would you, but I will give it a good soaking.

No, I think wind. Mine is more sheltered this year but the one spot that is exposed is now bare...
