Similarly, you may ask, where should I plant a weeping willow tree?
Still, a Weeping Willow can interfere with underground lines and should be planted at least 50 feet away from any underground water, gas, sewage, or electrical lines. Don't plant this tree within 50 feet of your neighbors' utilities, either—remember that roots don't abide by our artificial boundaries.
Likewise, how do you care for a weeping willow tree? Leave a 3- to 4-inch space between the trunk and the mulch. Water your weeping willow regularly during dry weather if it isn't near a pond, creek or other consistent water source. Keeping the soil moist, but not soggy, at all times results in the tree's best growth.
Similarly, how far away from a house should you plant a weeping willow tree?
If you plant a willow tree in your backyard, make sure it is at least 50 feet away from your house and any other nearby buildings, plus any underground sewage, gas, water or electrical lines.
Can you grow a weeping willow tree from a branch?
A weeping willow branch will grow into an exact replica of the mother tree, so pick an attractive one that you like to easily grow a new tree. Cut a young branch from a healthy, mature weeping willow in late fall or early winter, when the tree is dormant. Keep the branch moist and cool before planting.
