Willows react really well to getting all lopped off

Sorry if that was misleading, but it's not in our garden, it belongs three door
Down the road. We have Robinia trees only. Used to have a plum and a pair, but they were diseased so hot the chop down to the ground.
I just think it's amazing how this tree in just a few months. I will take a picture tomorrow of a mirabelle get Hans cut back to the trunk which is also amazing but not as graceful as the willow.

They say a full grown willow will drink 70 gallons of water a day.

I wonder how they measure that?

I just read my post above, what a lot of word changes this Kindle did, it's a wonder you understood what I was saying.
