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.
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.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Willow Hybrid.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
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.
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.
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.
