Black Willow Tree - Salix Nigra For Sale Affordable Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

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.
