One of the reasons I bought my house was the huge globe willow in the front yard. I love the shade and I love the way it looks. It gives my house a distinct look among the rest of the cookie cutter houses on my street. Well, about a month ago about 1/4 of it suddenly lost all it's leaves. I pruned the hell out of it and bought a tree treatment product which I was planning to apply tomorrow but last night I came home from a camping trip to find half of it (the good half) laying on my roof!!!!! Now I have a half dead half of a tree. I have a tree company coming to check the damage and evaluate the danger of keeping the tree, but right now it seems as if the smart thing to do would be to cut it down. Even if I can get it to recover, it's gonna be funny looking for a long time. I can't begin tell you how bummed I am.
Anyway, thanks for listening, I feel a little better.
