Willow, Wisconsin Weeping

Description: The Weeping Willow’s has sweeping, low branches that droop to create its familiar “falling” canopy. It is also known for its dramatic appearance and rounded, weeping shape. It is a perfect way to add character and value to property. It is one of the fastest growing shade trees, growing up to 6-8 ft. a year. It is best to plant it near trouble spots where water stands in puddles. You will see these puddles disappear. They are very adaptable to all kinds of soils and growing conditions; these trees can even help prevent soil erosion.
