Removing A Willow Tree
On the right side of our house, 10 feet apart from the house foundation, there is a willow tree, its height is just above the house's roof (two stories). It has been about 7 years old since it was planned by the previous owner.
I am told that if a willow tree is too close to the house, it will cause problems. If it is 10 feet away could it be a problem? I have decided to remove it, any ideas for what would be the best way to get rid of this tree? Thank you for any info.

Ten feet away from your house is not far enough. The willow tree roots spread fast and far. These roots can also damage your leach bed lines if you have a septic tank system.
When my husband cut our willow trees down (too old and messy) to ground level; he then axed into the trunk base and put limbs and twigs into it and burned it away throughout the summer.
