    Last year air layering

    Last year I tried airlayering some trees and the biggest branch that made it was one from my salix caprea, I left it alone to recover till this year. The main thing I'm learning right now is patience which I have none. There are a ton of mistakes in this picture and I'm asking you for you...

    Potential rust on willow

    Hi everyone! Technically my first post but long time lurker. My largest willow cutting that I got on a lark appears to have gotten a potential fungal infection from our latest downpour (or I assume that’s what the orange dots are). I know that the top evidently has dieback and I need to chop...

    Multi trunk willow

    Here is one of the willows I have been working on for the last year. I collected it at the beginning of summer last year and let it grow wild (It grew very fast). After the leaves fell I thought I would try to put some wire on it and begin sorting out some of the numerous branches, and try to...
