I have had this weeping pussy willow in my garden for the last 15 years. For some reason this year the top of the tree looks dead. No new growth has sprouted . There are new branches at the bottom of the crown. What can I do to safe it ? Thanks.

The top may have died off and the growth your are seeing is from below the graft line.

If the branches snap and break off, they have died. If you have no new growth above the graft there is nothing that can be done.

The growth is on top of the graft line & not all the branches are dead. They just have no leaves on it. There were some flowers on them which have dried up. Please advise.
Thanks
