Pussy Willow


yeswps added on September 9, 2016 | Answered

We have recently purchased a property with pussy willow in the backyard for privacy screen. But these are probably at their tallest heights, (almost three stories tall) and have many dead main stems. What's the best method to cut it back and make it more manageable at this stage?
