Hi - all advice greatfully received !
Our neighbour has a 50 year-old weeping willow the size of a house. This
is very beautiful except for the fact that it very effectively blocks
out all the evening sun. The plan is to prune it. This has been done
once before about 5 years ago, apparently without ill effects, but what
is your opinion about the possibility of survival since it is afterall
approaching expected the twilight of its lifetime ?, also when is the
best time tec.
Thanks for all suggestions

Thanks

Mark--
