Salix alba is a tall and majestic deciduous tree that grows to heights of 50’-80’. Named white willow for the silky white undersides of their leaves, this is a willow species that has naturalized in many parts of the country. This species has many medicinal uses and is great for wildlife. It is dioecious and its catkins provide pollinators early spring nectar and pollen, while its branches are used for shelter. Willow bark has a rich history of being used as a remedy for pain, headaches, and fevers. White willow, like many other willow species, thrives in moist soils, doing best around ponds or streams. It prefers full sun and has been found to tolerate deer, erosion, and black walnut.
