Description

Sold in bundles of 10

At a Glance: These trees are in the willow family and grow quite tall often with a branch free trunk and an open crown. Do not plant too close to water tanks, septic tanks, or pipes as they love water and the roots will bind with the pipes and cause damage.

Height: 30-60 m tall
Leaves:Deciduous leaves which are dark green on top and slightly paler beneath. Common to have white or brown resin blotches on the leaves. Turn yellow in the fall.
