White Willow (SAlix Alba)

White willow trees,(salix Alba) these may be dwarf shrubs, bushes or large trees. Many are suitable for ornamental use. Coppice and pollards of some provide superb winter twig colours. Most willows tolerate wet ground (so do not plant over drains), but not sustained total immersion. They are good for wildlife being host to numerous herbivores including mammals and invertebrates. The larger trees contribute meaningfully to the wetland landscape. Elderly pollards qualify as veteran trees. Very productive early coppice regrowth of some willow clones makes them potential producers of commercial biomas Wildlife Bees feeding are attracted to the flowers, and a range of butterfly and moth larvae, including the Large Tortoiseshell and Comma butterfly, feed on the leaves.
