    I'm convinced the tree is alive, but I cant think of any way a weeping willow can turn into a normal upright growing willow with out a plant being cut below a graft, or at least the graft dieing and the rootstock taking over.Any grafting would have been done years ago before the tree was planted.

    How do I protect new planted conifers against wind damage?

    No need to do that. Use cable ties and link them together like a chain. That gives plenty adjustment if needed also.
