    Re: Identify this tree?

    Hi,

    your tree is a willow, Salix sp. If you have a pic or could you describe the leaves too I might be able to help with species.

    From what you have described about the size of your tree it is one of ther larger species, the best way to manage it for your garden may be to pollard http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/Profile.aspx?pid=156 or coppice http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/Profile.aspx?pid=121 it as often as required, especially if the young stems have a good colour.

    Hope this helps.
