Height

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

The Weeping Willow's grace comes from its sweeping, low branches that droop to create its familiar “falling” canopy. 

A favorite among tree lovers for its dramatic appearance and rounded, weeping shape. 

Perfect for those looking for a quick way to add character and value to their property. An excellent shade tree that is always in high demand. 

This willow is one of the fastest growing shade trees, growing up to 6-8 ft. a year. They start out thin, with only a few branches that point upward against the trunk. After racing to a height of about 10 ft., they put out more and more branches that arch outword to form the weeping canopy they're famous for.

Thrives in Growing Zones 4-9, and has the ability to absorb standing water. Plant near trouble spots where water stands in puddles, and watch them disappear. 

Even though Weeping Willows are often found near rivers, lakes and wetlands, they can grow just about anywhere, even demonstrating some tolerance to drought. 

Very adaptable to all kinds of soils and growing conditions; these trees can even help prevent soil erosion. 

You will enjoy your Weeping Willow as a first harbinger of spring when its leaves appear before most others, and as one of the last trees to lose its leaves in the fall. 

• Excellent green color in the spring and summer months 
• Virtually no tree litter 

Everyone remembers the Weeping Willow mentioned in many poems, songs and stories because of its grace and beauty.

It's Easy to Plant your Weeping Willow

Specific Directions for Weeping Willow
Your Weeping Willow Tree will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Weeping Willow trees are shade tolerant and should be planted at least 35 feet away from septic tanks. Weeping Willow Trees have aggressive roots that actively seek water.

Weeping Willow Trees adapt well to all soil types, even soils that are heavy in clay or sandy. Keep your soil moist, water your Weeping Willow Tree two to three times a week during it's first year. Apple a layer of mulch after the base of your tree to hold the moisture in. After a year your Weeping Willow will adapt to drier soil won't need extra water unless you're experiencing a drought.

Fertilize your Weeping Willow Tree once every Spring after the final frost with a slow release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen and phosphorous. We recommend using formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Weeping Willow.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Weeping Willow gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Weeping Willow again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

We planted a Weeping Willow in the yard of our rental property in 2010 to take care of a really wet soil problem and because we love willows. Our tenant laughed at the 2 ft. stick that I was planting. Well, 3 years later there is a 25 ft gorgeous tree that has taken care of our drainage problem and is a spectacular addition to our property. Needless to say, our tenant is impressed. We recently purchased another Weeping Willow and planted it near our pond and I am sure that it will be just as beautiful as the first one. We are sold on Fast Growing Trees.com and we tell all our friends and family. Thanks for great products and service. Ed Schichte

I purchased a weeping willow in spring 2011 because it said it would grow up to 6 feet per year. 2 years later it is just 6 feet - more like a slow growing tree to me. It looks like a skinny stick in the back yard - very disappointing.

This is the second summer for our fast growing weeping willow trees. It was also the longest streek of 90 degree temps and driest on record for Indiana. We watered them this year with a few buckets about a dozen times and they have just surpassed our expectations. Full, lush and absolutely fast growing. I would recommend these for anyone that loves the beauty of a willow tree

We have two large weeping willow trees in our front yard that we purchased about a decade ago. They are pretty much at their mature height with a spread of about 20 ft. Everyone who walks by loves their graceful branches. We havent had any problems with our weeping willows shade trees. We are a true example of how weeping willows can grow perfectly fine without any standing water nearby.

I ordered a weeping willow right before spring and was a little worried that it was a bad idea because I live in Montana and we don't have soil we have rock but I've always wanted one and so has my dad so we planted it and to both of our amazement it is doing REALLY well and has grown so much already! It hasn't even been 2 months yet and it has so much new growth and the leaves and branches are double at least! I ordered a 3-4 ft I believe or maybe a 4-5ft but it is well on its way to being 6 feet already. I am truly amazed and happy with it.

I placed a very large order and one of the trees I ordered was Weeping Willow for a slightly boggy area, hoping it would help dry up the surrounding soil as it grew. I planted it in late May and I'm amazed that it has already grown about 2 ft.! This is exactly what I'd hoped for. I'll be ordering another one or two Willows next spring

I planted this weeping willow tree in Mid August 08. Now Late April it is so full. I live in Southern AZ and have clay and it was so hard to dig the hole that I worried the tree would not grow. But I was wrong it took real fast and started growing right away. It lost all its leaves last of all the trees and was the first to get its leaves back. It beat the native mesquite trees by 2 and a half months. Thank you for such a great product!!

Fantastic Tree, arrived as a somewhat thin trunk, started sprouting before I could plant it. My soil killed several other trees in this area, but these continue to thrive and are full and fluffy. Has increased from the thin trunk to about 9 inches in diameter, and about 10' wide in maybe 2 years? Would definitely order again

I bought one weeping willow and 4 willow hybrids. The weeping willow is now about 8-9 feet tall, skinny still, has not grown much sideways, like teenage boys. Every plant is extremely healthy and they were all about about June, amazing growth in short period of time . I would be glad to send a pic of the weeping willow if you want to use it on the website...just an idea. I am very pleased with i

I also bought 3 Royal Empresses and they are about 25-30 feet tall arleady. In just a couple of years, my yard looks like the trees have been there for decades

Update on the Weeping Willow I purchased in October, 2014
Thank you for asking for my feedback. I filled in the above circles so that I could send you a note. The tree arrived quickly and appeared to be very healthy. It was immediately planted on the bank of a creek at the end of my daughter's yard. Dawn's husband was careful to follow the planting directions and was optimistic that the outcome for their tree would be good. We will know more about how it is doing when Spring arrives. Southwestern Pa. has been cold and we have not had very much snow. It was a welcome birthday present and I look forward to purchasing another next year.

Fall Planting
I purchased my weeping willow and could not figure out why they cut the branches back and within 10 days I had new growth spurts occurring on all branches. The tree continued to bloom all fall. If they ask me again in the spring I can tell you how it survived the winter here in NY.

Love My Weeping Willow!
I planted my 3 foot weeping willow in July and it is already over 6 feet tall. Of course, it's still very slender but I look forward to the day that it provides shade in my front yard. I'm very happy with it and will be purchasing other trees in the future.

when I received the plant it was clearer much taller and cut down to fit in the box. Where they snipped the top off it was at least a half inch in diameter. I planted the tree using their transplant fertilizer stuff as well as Miracle Gro transplant liquid for a few weeks.

The tree I originally received looked like a tuning fork. A long straight trunk the y'd in two equal parallel trunks about halfway up. Not one branch, not one leaf. Just a trunk.
The root ball was def maxed out inside the nursery pot. Becareful if using a box cutter because most of the roots are tight to the pot.

Approx 3 months later my tree is unrecognizable. It has sprouted countless branches and is a big round ball of leaves. It not too much taller than when I planted it but has filled out unbelievably fast. Use mulch and plant near water and it will grow like a weed.

Great tree but did not survive Texas heat this year. Hard time growing tree when first purchased because of weather and nosey people removing the soaker hose. Finally, Spring of 2011 the tree was trying to come back to life and then we came into this drought/heat dome. Soooo, our poor tree has finally gone to tree Heaven. Will buy another one hopefully soon from you guys and try again

They arrived looking like 2 sticks. Barely any branches or leaves. I followed directions for planting. They dont look so well, certainly not fast-growing.

Excellent service!
My weeping willow was ordered on Wednesday and arrived at my home before lunch on Friday well packaged and healthy. It arrived was simple instructions to help me give it the care it would need to continue to flourish. I am very pleased with the weeping willow tree and I'm looking forward to watching it grow!

Great Purchase!!!!
As other reviews have stated, when I received this tree, it did look like a Charlie Brown tree. But I was astonished at how quick this tree has grown. It's amazing. I bought it a little less than two months ago and it has easily grown over a foot. It has sprouted new leaves and branches like crazy! It is beautiful and I would highly suggest this tree. I am in zone 9. I watered it every other day for the first two weeks and I have not watered it since. We have had quite a bit of rain though.

Thank you for an amazing tree!

Our backyard family tree.
Our backyard has a pavered patio along with a gazebo and a BBQ area. Although it is a functional use of the space, it was always missing something. We have some greenery along two sides of the yard but it wasn't enough. I ended up breaking through the concrete in the center of this area and built a giant stone planter for this weeping willow tree and couldn't be happier with the results in just one month! The tree arrived pre pruned and ready to plant. Following the directions that came with the tree, I was surprised how well and how fast it had establishes in such a short time. After 4 weeks, there were plenty of new leaves and a couple of new branches. This tree will undoubtedly grow up and out, giving us a beautiful landscape and natural shade coverage we so desperately desired. We highly recommend this tree and to point out, everything came out as advertised. Thank you!

Survived the drought!
This tree arrived in beautiful condition. Then I didn't plant it for 2 weeks....still ok. Then I planted it and we had a string of 100+ degree weather. I forgot to mulch it and I missed 2 days of watering. Everything dried up and I thought it was dead. My farmer daughter trimmed it and I mulched it and watered it judiciously. It is just fine now. Lots of new leaves, beautiful. Good tree!

True to the description
This tree is doing really well in my yard. I received it very late spring and it was as described...came in a pot and it was as tall as indicated with leaves and multiple branches, nice healthy tree. I planted it according to the instructions and it is thriving so far. The growth rate is a little slow this season but it has only been a couple of months since I planted it so it needed to settle first. I am sure the growth rate will pick up next season. As for hardiness, I will know more next spring...once we get through winter.

Used it at family farm
I planted it the next day after it arrived. It had a large root ball.
I used your plant fertilizer as directed.
It has been in the ground for about one week so I rated the growth as medium since it has not been planted long enough to really tell.
I planted it near one of our run-in stalls for our horses where some water was standing after a rain.
We have a full grown willow at another barn where we had the same situation and it has done a great job of sucking up that pool.

I received my willow trees in a heat wave in July and planted them anyway. They were small and easy to get into the ground. Within a couple of days the started to sprout new leaves and branches. They are doing great. I'm going to get a few more in the fall.

I bought it at a bad time of year..
The Willows have finally recovered! Full disclosure - I purchased 3 of them early April and apparently the trees are grown in SC which at that time of year is well into spring. Unfortunately, I live in Maine which we are not nearly as far along into spring when they arrived. We still had nights with frost..

However on the positive side, all 3 have survived a cool spring so far and are finally putting down solid growth in late July. My review will probably be more relevant in terms of growth rate this time next year but I felt it was a good idea to at least inform folks in the North that April probably isn't the best time to buy from this website - wait till May to purchase and plant!

Very hardy tree
Our tree arrives right as we were having flooding conditions so it set in the garage for a week. We did water it daily. Our plans on when and where to plant it were disrupted by the flooding and I was tired of looking at it in the garage. My solution was just throw it in the yard and see what happens. I literally shoved the tree roots in a muddy spot in the yard and secured the tree with the support rod it came with and walked away think this tree will never make it. 4 weeks later we returned from a trip to find that not only the tree made it but had many new shoots and had grown about 6 inches. This tree is amazing and is extremely hardy. We now look forward to seeing this tree grow to maturity. Note: we did finally dump a bad of soil on top of the roots that were showing. I would recommend buying this tree.

Great Value, Beware of beatles!
I overall had a great experience with fast growing trees. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. However, I feel was totally unaware of the predators of weeping willows. The tree arrived with a couple beatles on it and didnt think anything of it. They have given this tree a run for its money.

I am very excited to be growing a weeping willow in my front yard! However, I would not recommend purchasing the taller start as that was a waste of money. Nearly the entire trunk that was shipped to me died off, but the root took and another shoot started. I'm slowly on my way to the tree I wanted.

I have a weeping willow tree, in the spring as soon a the leaves are out they start turning yellow
and dropping off. we have had a lot of rain this spring but its dropping leaves. I would appreciate
your advise on what to do. ? This tree is about 10 years old and still growing.
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: If the leaves are curling upwards your tree isn't getting enough water. If the leaves look heavy and droopy and turn dark yellow to a brown or black before they fall off then your tree is getting too much water.

Fertilize your Weeping Willow with a slow release fertilizer, we recommend formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.

Check your tree for any signs of a fungus or pests.

How far away from the house should a willow tree be planted? Any trouble with the roots to the foundation?
Helen B on May 12, 2015
Best Answer: This tree grows quite large - 35 or more feet wide. The roots will grow much wider than the branches, so in ten years, the roots can reach anywhere from 40-75 feet wide. I would allow at least 50 feet from any water lines or septic fields, or a building. This tree is a great, fast-growing tree, but I would choose a different tree to use as a lawn tree if your space is limited.

I planted my willow this past March and it was doing well. However. recently the leaves have had a dark spot on both the green leaves and the yellow leaves that are falling. What do I need to do?
Carolyn K on Aug 12, 2015
Best Answer: Hello! I have understood yellow leaves to mean that the tree is being watered too much and that black spots are a fungus that often pervades the leaves forcing them to suffocate. Oh no! I hope that your baby willow can dry out a little and as far as the fungus, maybe you can try calling an arborist who may know how to apply a fertilizer specific to willow trees that help with increasing oxygen to the tree's branches. I hope this helps!!

How long does it take for the branches of a weeping willow tree to droop? We had one planted three years ago and it has just grown straight up and the lower branches are all dead. A contractor planted it and I'm now thinking it might not be a WEEPING willow tree!
Charlotte O on Jul 11, 2015
Best Answer: Charlotte-
We can take a look at a photo for you if you want to send us one through our contact us page. I am thinking your tree should be weeping by now. If it is still growing straight up you may be right and the contractor did not plant a weeping willow.

How far from shoreline to plant weeping willow so roots do not encroach into shorline?
Sandra K on Jun 15, 2015
Best Answer: This tree grows quite large - 35-45 feet tall in a windrow, and 50-70 feet tall as a specimen. The roots will grow twice as wide as the tree is tall, so in ten years, the roots can reach anywhere from 70-100 feet wide. I would allow at least 30-50 feet from your shoreline.

I live near Houston, Tx and temps are already near 90+. Is it safe to plant now? If not will the trees survive in pots til fall? It's only June..
Kelly M on Jun 9, 2015
Best Answer: I won't recommend to keep them in pot. Need a lot of water and the roots can overheat when on pot (low heat dispersion). Would rather plant them and water every day for at least the first month

Can I plant your weeping willow in late fall/early winter in Washington State, the temps are usually between about 40° and 50° with plenty of rain and a saturated yard. If this is not a good time when is the best for this area?
Sheldon S on Dec 8, 2014

what is the best for blocking my neighbors the willow tree or cork screw or one of the weeping cherry trees. the trees will be about 200 feet from my house not so concerned about height there house is one level but want something dense of course grows fast. not familiar with the trees but like the way they look. not sure if they are practical from PA can you grow in the house in a pot to give a head start till weather warm some?
sally d on Nov 20, 2014
Best Answer: Weeping Willows will do great in your area, however we suggest that you look into an evergreen tree fro privacy. They'll grow much faster than a willow and keep their leaves all year. Weeping willows drop their leaves in the fall!

We have a weeping willow tree in our back yard and the bark is splitting and peeling from the trunk. Is this normal?
Warren on Oct 29, 2014
Best Answer: That is not normal for Weeping willow at all. It may be a willow borer, they tunnel though the inner layer of the bark, causing the bark to crack and split. Look for signs of the borers in swelling branches and piles of sawdust, prune out any diseased looking bark or branches and spray the tree with permethrin to kill the borers.

can i grow a weeping willow near a sidewalk?
Robin R on Sep 10, 2014
Best Answer: Weeping Willows take a lot of space, both for their canopy and for their roots. A mature tree will spread 35 feet or more, and the roots extend far beyond the tree's branches, creating a shallow network that reaches out in every direction. If you are planning for the future, you should plant your Weeping Willow a minimum of 35 feet from pavement and 50 feet would be even better.

Hi, I purchased a weeping willow in Aug. it is doing good. I was wondering about the green ties. How long do I leave them on?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2014
Best Answer: I bought my willow 16 months ago and it is also doing very well. I have it still loosely tied to a stake for support because the wind could push it around. I make sure that the ties do not constrict or bite into the willow's small trunk as it grows. Because my willow is planted in a rural location, I also have kept a chest-high fence around it to keep deer from munching the small branches in the winter.

I have ordered two of these trees to help out with a water problem we are having. There appears to be a natural spring that has welled up near an old barn on our land. (Yes, we have checked to make sure nobody has a septic system draining there and there are no water lines in the area. A marshy area is beginning to grow and it appears to be originating right there.) We are trenching to try and divert the water away from the barn. We are hoping these two trees will help out too. Can these trees be planted in a boggy area? I keep reading that the soil needs to remain moist. Is shallow standing water too moist???

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.





Most Trees are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You


Tree before pruning Tree after pruning Rose before pruning Rose after pruning
Maple Tree before pruning Maple Tree after pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose before pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose after pruning

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
