Willow tree

Salix

Description:

Willows all have abundant watery bark sap, which is heavily charged with salicylic acid, soft, usually pliant, tough wood, slender branches, and large, fibrous, often stoloniferous roots. The roots are remarkable for their toughness, size, and tenacity to life, and roots readily grow from aerial parts of the plant.

Habitat:

Found primarily on moist soils in cold temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.
