I was given a corkscrew willow start a few years ago. It hs since been mowed down twice, but now stands about 6' tall. The prolem is, if there is one, my willow doesnt have a central trunk it is more like a bush with many limbs connecting to the trunk about 4 inches from the ground. Should I trim some off and try to get a more standard looking tree? Or is this how it is supposed to look? All the pictures I find only show the top not the trunk. I appreciate any advice. Thanks, Tam
