Weeping Willow

Created By: Unity College


Weeping Willow (Salix babylonica) is a small or medium sized tree. These trees were included in the tour, because several of them were planted all along the trail at Spring Lake, next to the edge of the water. They have a distinct weeping appearance, where their branches and leaves droop downward. These trees are exotic, meaning that they do not naturally grow here, but have not caused severe disruption to the ecosystem.

One of these trees fell into the lake several years ago, and is still growing. Turtles like to climb onto its branches to sun themselves.

Wire mesh was placed around the trunks of these trees to prevent beavers from felling them
