Black Willow trees are North American deciduous trees characterized by their dark brown bark, hence the name. 

They can be found as far north as Ontario, Canada, and as far south as Texas and are pretty standard. 

Low maintenance and reasonably easy to care for provide people with shade and many animals with food. 

Their flowers are usually one of the first to provide bees with nectar and pollen following the end of their hibernation. In addition to that, their leaves provide domestic grazing animals and elk and beavers with an abundant food source.

 Growing faster than most trees, they can add up to 4 feet in height per year and stop growing between 30 & 60 feet though sometimes they'll stop around ten if there isn't enough root space. As they grow, their branches and leaves spread as wide as the tree is tall, displaying a thick covering of yellow and green leaves.
