Globe Willow Tree

Anonymous added on April 9, 2014 | Answered

We have a 1 year old Globe Willow. It seems to be doing great. Question: Limbs growing from the bottom of the trunk. Should we prune these? Or as the tree gets bigger will these become part of the top?

You should remove them. They are referred to as suckers and some trees are more prone to them than others. They will not help with the health of the tree ad generally only sap energy from the tree, so it is best to remove them.
