How invasive are globe willows? Also, what is the distance they should be from the septic system and water lines, etc?
Rate This FAQ
They are not invasive at all in terms of weediness, since they are male clones that produce no seed. I imagine they sprout from their roots so they could be a little weedy near the parent tree.
I wouldn't plant a willow of any kind other than a shrub, since they grow too fast and are weak wooded and insect and disease-prone. If you have a septic system they should be as far as possible from it (50 feet or more). Water lines, etc. aren't much of a worry.

- I have 2 cottonless cottonwoods in my back yard. They are both about 7 years old. I noticed this spring that the trees have really grown tall but on the main limbs in the middle of the trees there are no limbs coming from them. I also find little pieces of new branches all over my lawn like they have come off right at the base where they connect to the tree. There are also at those points little scabs of some kind right where the branch has broken off. What is wrong and can I save these trees?
