comment Corkscrew Willow Bark Peeling and Bugs
Given that willows are really tough and out grow a lot of problems you could hedge your bets and cut the tree down to the ground and wait. Chances are good it will sprout suckers at the base and in no time you will have the tree back as a shrub.

comment What kind of caterpillar is this?
with a stick to open the webs and soap and water sprayed at sufficient pressure to get good coverage you can control them. Timing is everything, get them before they defoliate the entire shrub.

comment How can I straighten this crooked tree?
That tree has been growing crooked for years. If you are really concerned over having it straight get the landscapers to replace it. Even the city where I live plants trees that are straight.

If you don't have enough room to fell the tree and you don't have the right equipment then this is job for an arborist.

comment Are Scaffolding Nets are good options to put on my Trees to protect them from Birds and Squirrels?
@Bamboo yes, good suggestion, but the idea behind a good question is that it provides most of the details needed to answer it. A few years from now that link might be dead and the context of what it is might be gone.
