Weep for our Willow Tree

Around the 15th of May our large Willow tree decided to shed more branches.  This is the Willow tree in the northeast corner of Jeffrey Fontana Park not far from Alamden Expressway.  Back in 2010 it used to look like this:

East side of Willow  6-27-13

In Dec of 2012 she shed her first branch.
In Dec of 2012 the Willow shed the first branch.
Then this month two more limbs were shed.

It looks like one of the limbs broke off from the top & it then smashed into a bottom limb, breaking it off too.

The Parks Department has been notified.  We hope to see about arranging to have this tree fully trimmed of all it’s dead branches.
