I have a question about my weeping willows. I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere. I did a quick search, and the topic turned up empty.
I have 2, 7 foot weeping willows and they appear to be dying. The tips of the leaves are turning yellow, appear to be eaten (caterpillars most likely), they have black spots on them, and I have seen these very tiny black bugs crawing up and down the trunk. Watering them is not an issue. They both get plenty of water and sunlight.
Does anyone have an idea of whats going on? Also how to get rid of the bugs? I am not an organic person, so pesticides are ok by me.
I understand pictures are worth a 1,000 words...however it is 8pm right now. I will attempt to post some tomorrow for a better explanation of my issue.
Once again, thank you for any and all assistance.
