However, it comes in some different sizes. The size of this tree can range from 7 feet to 25 feet tall. This tree is best in hardy zones 3 through 9. As long as you have quality soil, adequate sunlight as well as feeding and watering it regularly, it will be just beautiful.

The tree is usually found near wetlands in eastern parts of the United States. The average tree grows at the height of 50 to 65 feet tall. Off of a single trunk are multiple stems.

The trees bloom dangling catskins with tiny flowers that do not have petals. The bark of the tree is dark brown, black, or gray. Growing this tree is as comfortable as breaking off a branch and planting it in the ground near water. The tree grows better in the sun but can improve in shady areas. Though the tree matures in thirty years, the species is known for having a short life expectancy. The wood has no odor or taste and has been used as a tonic to cleanse the blood. Many things are made from this tree because the wood is light and flexible. Some furniture parts and artificial limbs are made from this tree.

Often used as lumber for shipping boxes, the Black Willow tree, or Salix Nigra to give the tree its Latin name has become a favorite tree for those looking to put large pieces of land to good use in a bid to make a profit on their property. One of the most impressive aspects of the Black Willow is the broad range of hardiness zones the tree can be planted within across the U.S.; classed as native to eastern North America, the Black Willow can be found from Southern Ontario through regions of Florida and Texas. The Black Willow is known as a medium sized tree that can grow to a range of sizes from just over 30 feet to around 100 feet; alternating leaf sizes and shapes add interest in the form of long and thin to short and broad leaves.
