Fast Growing Privacy - Grows 6-10 Feet a Year!

One of the Fastest Growing Trees for Sale
Planted in full sun or part shade and given plenty of water, this willow will block any undesirable view you have in as little as a year! It can reach its full mature height of 60 - 70 feet in just 4-5 years. If that's more height than you need, the Willow Hybrid is easily pruned to stay within bounds.
Unbeatable as a Hedge
Plant them 3 feet apart in single rows for dense cover in a year; plant 5 feet apart in double staggered rows for a snow-stopping windbreak. Even though the willow drops its leaves in the winter, if planted densely enough the branches still provide an effective privacy hedge and wind break all season long. Willow Hybrid is easily sheared to whatever height you like. Use it as a foundation hedge as easily as a fencebreak.
Winter Hardy and Very Healthy
Extremely disease and pest resistant, the Willow Hybrid is hardy from Canada to Florida and can thrive in most any soil.
We don't measure roots, instead, we sell our trees with the height measured from the base up. When you buy a tree from Nature Hills Nursery, it will be the height you paid for after you plant it.
