There is nothing more picturesque then a warm summer breeze blowing through the branches of a willow. The long, narrow leaves seem to cascade off of the branches and are the trademark beauty of this tree. The weeping willow has a wonderful natural form and is often used as single specimen shade tree due to their large size and spread. They thrive near water, so they add charm to low land areas, or any body of water.
