Hi bunny, we used hazel as a make shift trellis type structure to block a gap in the hedge. About 4-5 verticals and then the rest was woven in horizontally.
Also used fresh cut hazel for stakes to support Lupins, was very surprised last year that the stakes started growing fresh shoots, not sure if they are going to sprout this year.
Not had any experience about willow but OH tells me they go soft quickly
