Something Is Wrong With My Weeping Willow :(
We planted a Weeping Willow about 6 weeks ago. Last week the leaves started turning yellow and dropping :( I checked the yellowed leaves and they have brown spots on them.
What could be wrong? This is just a little 'baby' tree - HELP! :cry:
Thanks for any advice.
How big is it?
Where are you located?
Was it put from pot to ground, or a transplant?
Did you prune any limbs?
Did you prune or spread the roots?
How much water are you giving it?
I live in Massachusetts.

Yes - I pruned some limbs after we planted it, from the bottom,
No, I didn't spread the roots - instructions didn't say to.
I watered it about a bucket a day for the first couple of weeks, then just let it get watered for the most part by mother nature - until this happened - the last few days I've been letting water from the hose trickle to the roots all day long.
It was from a pot to the ground.
Thanks for helping.

Wow - yours sure grew a LOT in 2 years - is ours liable to grow that fast?
