Planting A Weeping Willow Tree

Weeping willow trees have roots that spread out and travel far. If you own small grounds; avoid planting this tree. If you do own large grounds with a septic system; plant very far back from leachbed lines and any large tree planted near a house can interfere with the foundation. Weeping willows are also very messy even though beautiful. In landscapes in our area people plant weeping cherry trees close to their house that don't grow large as the willow and blooms in the spring if you're looking for something to that effect.

How about Timbuktu? Seriously. Steer clear of a weeping willow, unless you have a huge property and don't care about the grass in your yard. Otherwise, don't plant a weeping willow. (09/17/2008)
