Black Willow Tree - Salix Nigra is One of the Fastest Growing of the Willows

Black Willow Tree, salix nigra is named for dark brownish-black bark, the Black Willow is one of the fastest growing willows. It grows to be one of enormous willows when mature. Leaves are sprawling and create an irregular tree shape. The shallow roots prefer moist soil; they are naturally found in wetlands and along streams. Roots need a lot of supply of water during the growing season. They are very tolerant of flooding. The trunk is usually one thick trunk or several trunks growing from one root set. The wood is light, sturdy, and resists splintering; therefore, it has many commercial uses. Historically, natural Glucoside Salicin was extracted from the bark and leaves of the willow and used to treat ailments such as rheumatism. The ingredient, salicylic acid, is currently used in aspirin; although it is now made synthetically. Narrow-leaf blades taper to a point and grow up to 5 inches long.
 

Black Willow Tree are Very Flood Tolerant and Resistant to Splintering 

When ripe, reddish-brown, cone-shaped fruit dries and cracks open. In March and April, modest yellow flowers or catkins, lacking petals, bloom at the time when leaves appear in spring. Leaves turn yellow in the fall and either fall off or wither and remain on branches during winter. It grows best in moist soil and typically can be found in clay, loam, and sand.The Black Willow tree is an extremely hardy species found most commonly in the eastern portions of the United States. They are known both for their splinter resistant softwood, and their uncanny ability to thrive in wet and unfavorable conditions.
 
 
Its wood is so flexible and lights that it was once used to make artificial limbs, but today it's most common use is in the construction of shipping boxes.  

The Salix Nigra tree, commonly named the Black Willow Tree, is a deciduous tree known for fast growth, multiple trunks, and a large spreading top. The Black Willow Tree is known to reach maximal heights of more than 120 feet, while average heights tend to fall between 30 feet to 75 feet tall. The Black Willow Tree is found throughout United States wetland areas along the Eastern seaboard and is also as far north as Minnesota and Canada, as far west as the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and as far south as Texas and Florida. 

  This tree grows best in USDA Growing Zones 4 – 9 and blooms primarily between March and April. Environments with full sunlight and medium amounts of shade are best for The Black Willow Tree, and the roots of the tree are partial to wet, moist soil. 

  In keeping with its name, the bark of the Black Willow Tree darkly colored with long, deep indentations. Leaves of the tree are a deep, dark greenish color and develop a yellowish tinge in the months of the Fall.  

 The firm, stable roots of the Black Willow Tree are frequently used to help control erosion in wet areas. The roots often spread to help stabilize the surrounding soil.
