Willow Trees by Pond

Q: I have two weeping willows next to a pond. They are about 50 ft. tall 4 to 5 ft. in diameter. My pond is going dry.

My question is should I remove the trees to save the pond?

Thanks
Mike

A: Although the trees are undoubtedly using the pond as one source of water, I doubt they are draining it it dry. Instead, the pond's source must be diminishing, perhaps due to a prolonged dry spell.

The trees may show ill effects from the reduced amount of water, but I don't think taking them down is necessarily the answer.

If there is any way to supplement their water supply I suggest trying that until sufficient rain falls to take over.
