Which tree to plant?

Michelle Madigan asked 13 years ago
I’m looking for a “weeping” tree as a feature at the end of my lawn. The soil is always fairly damp, but never waterlogged. I was also hoping that I could find a variety that would be a max height of 20-25 feet. Everything I have found seem to be huge or dwarf.

Sounds like a perfect spot for a weeping willow. The best one to get is called Salix babylonica. Try to get this one because it is much more disease-resistant than the commonly sold one, Salix ‘Chrysocoma’.
