If you are a carpenter, or are just good with your hands and like building your own furniture, then consider planting or buying a black willow tree. These trees enjoy cooler climates near wet areas, such as swamps and rivers. The soil Black Willows need to grow should get plenty of water. 

These trees grow very fast. If you live near the water in a cool climate, these trees will provide the perfect amount of shade for you in the summer months. The tree's leaves measure three inches and dangle down. This cascading effect will provide a calming atmosphere to your backyard. From far away, the leaves look like a green cloud blowing in the wind. Your family would soon come to love and appreciate this whimsical tree.

The Black Willow's limbs are very pliable, which is why the limbs used to be used to make artificial limbs for people. Now, the uses for the tree include but aren't limited to, shipping boxes, furniture, and toys. These trees have a long history. The Ancient Greeks made tea from its bark and the Native Americans used it's bark for medicinal purposes. Because the trees require a lot of water to grow, these trees also serve and environmental purpose. During times of a great amount of rain, these trees suck up the water through the soil. That is why it is important to have a sufficient amount of trees near wetlands.
