Pruning dappled willow

Zone Toronto, Ontario Zone 5/6 | Gnome added on April 24, 2016 | Answered

Our dappled willow has become out of control. We have pruned it several times. Right now it looks like it's mostly dead, with several thick stumps and very little new growth. (I know it is early spring yet.) I want to know if I remove the older dead wood if the new shoots will continue to grow.
