Fastest Growing Tree on  PLANET EARTH!
Salix Alba Matsudunna
These are the fastest growing trees we know of for shade, privacy, wind protection and soil conservation. Grow up to 1/3
faster than our hybrid poplars! Small, one foot cuttings planted at a university reached from 14-20 feet the first year! Hybrid Willows are
very hardy, very disease resistant and can withstand extreme weather conditions. They survived in most areas of Canada (even in arctic
weather) and grow as far south as Florida!
Excellent for landscaping! Thrive in dry soils and help dry out boggy land. Tall and upright
growing without brittle wood. Often reach 35-45 feet tall with lateral branches from the ground up planted as a hedge.

Planted alone they grow 50-75 feet tall. Provide a full dense cover that makes them ideal for shelter belts.Life span of 70
years under good conditions. Fastest growth is in the first five years.
The New Willow Hybrid - At Thuja Gardens we grow a unique cross of Salix matsudana and Salix alba creating Salix matsudana x
alba. This amazing combination of genetics has created a species that grows extremely quickly, usually reaching 20' within two years of
planting.The species is rather disease resistant and has very few insect problems that affect the overall growth habit. The species does well
in many different soil types, from sandy to clay soils, however the most important requirement is moisture.If water is provided regularly
during the first year after planting, the root system will support the tree after the planting year.

OURS ARE DUG AND SHIPPED FRESH THE SAME DAY!
