Willows Thriving After Topping

    I was a bit worried last fall after we topped our big willow trees.  I had to do something since their big branches were leaning precariously over our house.  I didn’t want to chop them down because we liked the shade, so I just had some tree trimmers come in and I had them topped.  Topping is a terrible thing health-wise to do to a tree, but at least they would continue to live.
    I was nervous about what they would end up looking like once they began to regrow.  I figured it would take a couple of years for them to look presentable again, but they regrew foliage like crazy this summer and the two photos show the progress.
