Evening all,

could anyone help with the identification of the following tree?

It is a weeping variety, is not broad leafed and doesn't have any noticable flowers.  The weeping branches are also slightly wavey branches

Thank you in advance

The picture is a bit dark to see - could it be a twisted hazel or are the leaves too narrow?

Thanks Sara, sorry about the picture it is my sisters garden, I've asked her to take a picture of the trunk and a close up of the leaves and send them to me so I can add to the post.

The leaves are too narrow to be a twisted hazel, to be perfectly honest I have never seen another tree like this

Hi, sounds like a twisted willow to me, see links below:

Sorry, this one is in French, but pictures should be clear

Hi, that was my thought too Sue - but a clearer photograph would help

Thank you all, it is definitely a twisted willow.  I must now get her to get it out as it only about 3.5 metres away from the house
