What is the growth rate of this species?
John W on Jan 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It can grow up to 8' per year, especially if it's planted near a water source (pond, stream, etc.). Willows like "wet feet."
If planted in a raised bed, will the roots destroy the blockwork?
Rick Y on Mar 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is one of those trees that is really not suitable for a raised bed. Its root system is large and sprawling. It really needs to be planted in a low area or near a pond, river or stream.
does this tree loose alot of limbs durning wind like soft maples?
Linda M on Feb 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is not a hardwood tree, but by nature, the branches sway in the wind and are meant to withstand a certain amount of windspeed.
does this tree attracts insects?
raquel on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I've had mine for a year and haven't noticed any more insects than anywhere else in my yard.
How big will the tree be when it arrives?
Rebby on May 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It will arrive bare-root, at 3 - 4' tall.
I have a lot of clay in my soil, but it???s all very moist. Will it survive the clay?
LisaH on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This tree will love the "wet feet". It would help to do two things: Dig a very large planting hole (at least 3' wide and deep) and amend it with coco-fiber planting medium. Then plant the tree about 4 inches ABOVE the soil line and mound the soil up to the top of the roots, so that it looks like the tree is planted on a small hill. The coco will help aerate the clay until the roots are old enough/strong enough to penetrate it on their own, and mounding the tree will keep it from "suffocating" in the heavy soil when it's young. Gorgeous tree, you're lucky to have the space for it.
How tall are they?
Patrick A on Mar 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mature sizes are listed on the individual variety pages, in the Size & Spacing section. This tree reaches a height and width of 30-50'.
are there dangers of roots getting into water supply like wells?
Linda M on Feb 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Willows have extensive root systems and should not be planted within 50' of a leach field or well.

Hardy and resilient
The willow was cut extremely short short after planting by a deer or other foraging animal and I thought it done for. It not only came back but more than doubled in size from the original planting in the same growing season. It's looking fantastic this spring and I imagine it will be significantly larger by the end of the season again.
