cork screw willow tree looks very sad!

It doesn't sound good Kleeblatt.

You couldn't damage a main root without knowing you'd done so and willow can put up with that sort of thing anyway. I doubt if wood chip have any adverse effects either. 

Is it grafted? If so does all look well there, no rot or damage anywhere on the trunk?

I don't think you can post photos from a phone which is a pity.

If there are healthy bits I'd take a cutting or two.

Want some OL? I'll see if I have any seed yet. It comes with a warning. I have it as inintentional ground cover in some places

But just remember all the other potentially good insects you'll be killing if you go the chemical route. Chemicals don't discriminate between 'good' and 'bad' insects. They're ultimate as the name says.
