young weeping willow tree
Planted new young weeping willow tree this spring, doing well. There is a large limb at the top that is larger at this point than the main stem I have chosen for the main. The limb competing with the main is longer and larger around than the main but hangs down. How do I resolve this problem and when?

Because weeping trees require specialized pruning, you may want to call a certified arborist to come have a look at your tree. I am not sure whether it is best to remove that branch or to stake it and treat it as the new main stem.
