About Willow Trees

The genus of willow trees is salix. This group of deciduous trees has thin sap that contains salicylic acid. They have soft pliable wood that is also tough, slender branches, and elongated leaves (typically). Willow trees hold onto their leaves longer than most deciduous trees and are some of the first to emerge from dormancy. They are also an early source of pollen for bees and they provide nectar for honey as well.

How to Care for Willow Trees

Willow trees are low to no maintenance once they are established. Willows adapt to most soil and can tolerate wet sites. Newly planted willow trees should be watered deeply 2 to 3 times per week for the first couple months. Apply mulch to newly planted willow trees to help the ground hold moisture longer, reduce watering needs, and eliminate weeds. These trees can be fed when planting and in spring with slow release fertilizer.
