Why You Should Not Plant Willow!:
Willow is not a good tree because of its large, lateral size. If you want a "weeping" yard tree, pick from cherry and birch species. Willow is a much loved tree but needs to be planted in it's proper habitat along streams and ponds.
*Willows offer highly ornamental bark, flowers and foliage.
*Willows grow very quickly and can be transplanted easily.
