Weeping willows are fast-growing trees that need large, open areas to grow. They can grow 45 to 70 feet tall and spread 45 to 70 feet. These trees are easy to identify because of their long branches that sweep toward the ground. The roots grow quickly and will spread up to three times the distance from the trunk to the edge of the canopy. Weeping willows grow best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. This common tree is available for purchase at most local nurseries.
