We have a 30-year-old willow tree that appears to be in trouble. The main trunk splits into two fair size limbs about 5.5 feet off the ground. There is a split starting to appear just below the Y, and for the first time we are seeing a lot of clear, foamy fluid. It will break our hearts to have to get rid of this tree. Would taking some of the weight off the top limbs help? Other than the bleeding/splitting, it is in great shape! And we love it!
