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.

Need to block a large area in a hurry? The American Willow grows up to 6+ ft. a year... filling out to create a solid green wall!

This tree serves as an excellent, trouble-free privacy screen. American Willow trees are very effective at blocking out what you don't want to see.

Disease resistant too! Tolerates both hot and cold climates... Grows well from Florida to Canada! Thrives in almost any soil.

Our special breed of American Willow is famous with Builders and Developers around the Country.

Savvy Home Builders can take an undesirable piece of property and magically hide views of roads and unsightly neighbors. In little time, buyers will see a well-formed, lush green hedge, and forget about what's on the other side.

These trees are a landscaping secret that can potentially add millions to the value of a housing development, or tens of thousands to your home.

Enjoy natural privacy for a fraction of what you would pay for an ugly fence.

When you receive your trees, they don't look like much. Plant them 5 feet apart and stand back. They fill out faster than any hedge tree we know of... typically forming into a thick green wall by the end of the first full growing season.

American Willow Trees are not evergreen but the thick growth of the tree will provide you with ample screening throughout the winter.

The recent turn in the housing market has put these trees in short supply. Order today while they're still available.

It's Easy to Plant your Willow Hybrid

Specific Directions for Willow Hybrid

Plant your Willow Hybrid Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Willow Hybrid Tees should be placed five feet apart for privacy screens and twenty to thirty feet away from structures.

Willow Hybrid Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if your soil is sandy or heavy in clay. Willow hybrid Trees don't require any fertilizer. Your Willow Hybrid will grow fine on its own.

Water your Willow Hybrid Trees twice a week, while watering your trees count to 20. Willow Hybrid Trees won't need any extra water unless it doesn't rain for three to four weeks during the summer. Your Willow Hybrid Tree will be able to handle wet conditions because Willow Hybrid Trees love swampy environments. Three times a year spread a three inch layer of mulch around the base of your tree and an inch away from the trunk in order to hold moisture in.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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 Willow Hybrid 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 Willow Hybrid 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.

Purchased aussie willows last fall, now we want to use as privacy screen, planted 6 feet apart, now 10 feet tall. What is your suggestion on pruning and when to prune?
Craig on Sep 2, 2014
Best Answer: In order to thicken the Willows, you should prune in the fall. I would advise pruning them just below the height you want them to remain. If you want them to remain at 10 feet, prune them at 9. In the spring they will have new growth and you will then stop them at 10',on a monthly basis. They will have nowhere to go except to widen, and thicken.

What are the watering needs?
Yolie on Aug 3, 2014
Best Answer: Watering needs depend upon where you live! I planted several hybrid willows in the high plateau area outside Santa Fe, NM. They have done exceedingly well. The first year I watered every day. Second year, every other day and still watering pretty much every other day this third year - or more as needed since we are in a drought. They will take less water the more established they become. Now - 3rd year - the trees are about 20 tall and when they go dormant this winter, I will cut some of the lower banches off so they look more like trees than bushes. Hope that helps! They are wonderful trees!

Will my Trees and Shrubs 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


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

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.
