willow tree's leaves turning yellow.

Fairly new willow planted last fall - was doing very well but is now turning it's leave yellow & losing them. Can I be giving it too much water? I was told to water him daily for the first year.

Hi Kimberk,

I hope your willow is doing better. I've never heard of watering a tree daily unless you live in the desert and the temps are over 85*F. Maybe these links will help for you to check to see your tree isn't planted too deep, is mulched properly and how to water.
