There is no other way to say this, but YES, they do require large amounts of water. Most gardeners agree that Weeping Willows are best suited near a fresh body of water due to the nature of their roots which aggressively seek out water whether that be sewer lines or septic lines.
For the first year of planting your willow will require watering weekly. To help encourage the roots to establish themselves in the soil. Water your newly planted tree every other day for several weeks. After that, watering the tree once a week should be sufficient.
Pruning should be done in January – March. Snip branches back as this will trigger the sprouting of new branches and bring fresh foliage to the forefront. There is no need to prune severely, but a light trim annually will be beneficial to the tree’s health and appearance.
