Fast, Graceful and Enduring

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.

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

Probably like a lot of you, I was scared when I opened this poor, leaf-less sapling; however, it is a THRIVING tree now, and that is not because of anything I did. If you follow the instructions, these trees will GROW and GROW

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.
December 31, 2012
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.

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

We had a tree service come out to trim our Weeping Willow tree and he hacked off just about everything on it and its over 20 years old, and when we asked him why he did that and he said he trims them all like this and that the branches will grow back real quick since this is the beginning of summer, So is this true or false?
kathryn s on Jun 2, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, this is true. My willow was blown half over (it was about 40 ft) and landed leaning on a wooden fence. My husband set to work to chop it up, since the root ball was mostly exposed. Then we noticed after a few days that the remaining leaves were still alive. But it was indeed mostly bald.
Hubby pulled it with a tow strap back into it's hole in an upright position. He attached the strap then onto an older maple tree to keep it upright. We watered it a lot.
Sure enough, the next spring it sent out shoots. In a total of 3 years since it's falling it has finally returned to it's full graceful glory at 40 ft.
I'm thrilled because this was (is) my "tree-zebo". I have a swing under it and the long branches fall gracefully all around the swing. It's kind of hidden and no one can see you in there. I watch the neighborhood from my swing under this beautiful tree hearing the swish of the wind in it's branches.

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: Agree you are over watering it or either feeding it too much to cause that . if you have alot of water in the yard that tends to stay around in the yard I suggest to raise the plant higher with a mound with good mulching I had so much rain this spring it almost drowned mine so I had to build a higher mound to keep it from driving and yellowing. Made a huge difference trust me. I would not feed it until summer or until you noticed the colors in the leaves is asking you to feed it

I have bought many trees worried that I am just spending my money to find out they will die cause of my soil... I planted it last fall out in the open and we had a harsh winter (Nebraska weather) in the spring I was soooo happy to see it thriving! It is now July and I have really notice the trunk getting thicker and the tree getting taller! This has been te best trees so far that I have planted! I just bout a weeping cherry this year and will see how that one does! So far also this year my wisteria is doing well also but I never talk to soon as I wait all winter to see if it survived!

Can you buy and plant them anytime in the year? I'm in Houston Texas. Magnolia really.
Andrew Sarah E on Jul 7, 2016
Best Answer: I live in NJ so this may not be the best answer for your different planting zone. Planted ours in I believe May and used the fertilizer pills that I believe came from this supplier. Did use better earth than our sandy/clay soil and the first year did water it about once a week. For the past two years it has done fine on it's own. We live on a Bay so the tree does get hit with wind and that has retarded its upward growth a bit but am planning to buy several more and will probably plant them in the Fall.

Very easy to plant as long as you have a decent shovel. Not a big production!

Do Willow trees like a lot of sun?
Laura on Mar 31, 2016
Best Answer: Mine is in very bright sun and yet is not growing all that rapidly because it's on a bay where the wind makes it difficult for most trees to even survive. My willow tree, however, is doing well and obviously is going to make it.

I purchased mine to replace one we lost during Frankenstorm Sandy and I found the first following Spring that I really did miss its beauty and the shade it provided. It's a lovely tree and again can take very tough weather. Waiting right now to see what this Spring will bring!

Will Willow tree grow in soggy soil?
Laura on Mar 31, 2016
Best Answer: Best bet is to google that question. Willows like moist soil, like along river banks. You might think about cypress trees. The bald cypress is a really good tree for shade and relatively fast growing. I have both. Cypress has good shade in summer and allows sun in winter - on the South side.

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: A willow tree should be planted far away from the house because the roots will reach for the foundation in search of water. However, if you have a pond near the house, then the willow could be planted next to it. We planted our weeping willows very far away from our home, near some kind of wetland spot, and they are doing very well. They also grow fast.
Good luck,
