Weeping Willow Tree (Salix babylonica)
Weeping Willow Tree, Salix babylonica, is a graceful tree famous for its long, drooping branches and dense light green leaves.
When TN Nursery customers seek advice on a fast-growing tree, the weeping willow tree is a typical recommendation. This species can grow up to two feet in a single growing season--faster than most others.
Salix babylonica is an Asian native species that American gardeners and landscapers in almost every USDA plant hardiness zone adopted the species over the past many decades. As a result, it's now naturalized to the United States and is ubiquitous across our landscape.
This deciduous shade tree is intriguing and lovely, making it a favorite for many.
The Weeping Willow Tree Can Help Fight Soil Compaction
Like many other tree species, the weeping willow prefers well-drained soils in either full sunshine or partial shade. However, the weeping willow tree might help lessen your trouble if you struggle with soil compaction.
The tree has an extensive root system that is relatively shallow but spread as far as fifty feet wide. As your tree grows, the roots will shoot underground in every direction, acting as a subterranean tiller and de-compacting the earth from below its surface.
As a result, your ground will absorb rainwater better due to the loosened texture instead of running off in torrents that would eventually cause soil erosion.
The Weeping Willow Tree Has A Whimsical Appearance
The weeping willow tree captures the imagination--you can almost picture sweet little storybook gnomes living beneath its branches.
The fifty-foot tree can also get as wide as forty feet. It forms an asymmetrical crown that's rounded. The tree's trunk is dark brown to charcoal with interesting furrowed patterns.
The branches display lovely silvery green, elongated oval leaves that measure four to six inches long and a half-inch wide. After maturing, this tree may only require occasional pruning to remove branches that could crack under the weight of the lovely foliage.
