How far from my house should I plant a weeping willow tree?
Hardiness Zone: 6b

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.
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)
