Weeping willow - rot and webbing at base - bark peeling off

Asked March 19, 2018, 4:33 PM EDT

I have a 20 year old weeping willow that has a white webbing under the bark and the bark can be easily pulled off. the tree is rotting under the bark. This condition is all the way around the base of the tree but the rest of the tree looks healthy. Please advise - We love this tree and would hate to loose it.

At this point, our best advice to you is to schedule an on-site evaluation of the tree by an ISA certified arborist. To find one near you try using the following website from the International Society of Arboriculture. http://www.isa-arbor.com/findanarborist/arboristsearch.aspx?utm_source=homepageclicks&utm_medium...

needed.
