The straight and curly bits come from the same big stem at the bottom? Do I just hack off the straight bit and hope it won't damage the curly bit? or get rid of both and leave the other all curly one?

Thanks very much. The Acer also needs moving but they can wait til Autumn is that would be better, I don't want to kill them! Does the willow need to be pruned? Do I cut the straight stems out from the ground?

I am new to here and new to gardening in general but we plan to do something with our garden this year!

I have what I believe to be a twisted willow tree which is about 6foot tall. I have no idea how to care for it, it has looked after its self since we moved in 3 years ago.

I need to move it to another spot as it is currently in the middle of the patio in a 3ft square area with an Acer. It appears to have 2 trunks, one of them is all curly, the other one splits into 2 and 1 branch is curly and the other is straight? Is this normal?

What is the best way to move it?
