How do you properly prune a weeping willow tree? And is there a way to control the hight of a weeping willow tree?

Weeping willows are generally not routinely pruned, but you can remove any errant branches that stick up instead of hanging down. Some gardeners prune the bottoms of the branches to a specific height rather than allowing them to hang on the ground. You can do this, too. As for the height of the tree, there's really no way to control it. The trunk will continue to grow higher and new branches will be produced as it increases in height. Best wishes with your weeping willow!
