The willow is about 2 years old and has started to bud. Is it too late to move it?
I bought a bundle of willow branches online and placed them as instructed. They started budding/growing leaves, more and more each day. A few months later I went out back and planted them. A week later I went out and there were leaves/branches sprouting everywhere.
It was out back for maybe 6 months, and is about a year old now. Recently my dad asked me to move it to the front, so I did. As expected, it went into shock. The leaves whithered and eventually fell off and the branches dried out.
Some of the branches are sprouting new leaves, closer to the trunk of the tree; but there are so many more branches that are dry and brittle. Do I prune the dead branches/twigs, or will the tree eventually catch up and look beautiful again?

Can I transplant a weeping willow? And if yes, how do I do this?
Can l move my willow tree from the ground to another place, as it has no room to spread?
