Black Willow is a species of tree which belongs to the Willow family. These trees are native to the eastern part of North America. They can be found in locations such as Ontario, New Brunswick, Minnesota, Florida, and Texas. Black Willows are known for having a fast growth rate and can grow up to 4 inches per year. The height of these trees ranges anywhere from 30 to 60 feet tall. They are grown on broad trunks that range from 20 to 30 inches in diameter. The leaves found on Black Willows are thin, green, and have serrated edges. The leaves can grow up to 6 inches long. Lastly, Black Willows contain dark-colored bark which ranges from dark brown to black. The color of the bark is where these trees get their name from.
Black Willows prefer to be in temperate climate zones. Due to this, they thrive in hardiness zones 2 to 8. These hardiness zones are characterized by both warm and cold temperatures. In order to grow, Black Willows need areas that contain a large amount of sun along with soil that is constantly moist. These requirements lead this species of tree to grow along streams and wetlands.
Black willows play a very important role in environmental stabilization and restoration. Researchers have found that this tree species has the ability to act as a tool for preserving the environment due to several factors. Black Willows can survive in areas where high amounts of environmental toxins are present. They also have the ability to sustain flooding and act as an erosion control tool. Due to these factors, researchers believe that Black Willows do an efficient job at preserving the environment and preventing it from destruction. Without Black Willows present, a habitat can be destroyed due to toxins and erosion.
