Weeping Willow Damage

12 years ago

I have a 3 year old 8 foot tall weeping willow tree, which is growing in the Berkshire Mountains at my weekend house. The tree was growing great, trunk strong with many leaves emerging. Today I saw that the crown of the tree was broken along with many branches on the top. What could have caused this damage? Are there any animals that are known to climb weeping willow trees and chew or break off the branches? I am trying to root the branches in hopes of planting more trees around.

Any advice would be appreciated!
