A native tree in Britain, the grey willow (salix cinerea) is quite similar to goat willow, both being described as 'sallow' or 'pussy willow' when in flower, but the grey willow is never more than a small tree, with an expected final height of a mere 6m (20ft). 

Woodland Design Principles

Typically, grey willow is planted in groups of between 10 and 25 trees.  This number of trees is ideal for creating a wildlife habitat and a meaningful source of food and shelter.  Spacing may vary between 1m (3ft 4in) and 5m (16ft 8in).  Blending of one species into another is suggested although bearing in mind different growth rates.  The aim is to mimic what nature intended and thus avoid artificial lines.  This tree is with other native willow varieties and other native, British trees an important ingredient (species component) in the creation of new native woodland.

Benefits of using our plug plant trees

Our grey willow trees are sold as plug plants, in other words the roots are encased in compost. This means that planting can be carried out at any time of the year, provided they are watered in periods of drought, compared to bare-root plants which can only be planted during the plants normal dormant period (November to March).  All of these trees are UK grown, which is important for successful establishment

Site Conditions And Evergreen Tree List
Our tree chart details which site conditions suit which trees and also which are evergreen or semi-evergreen.

Feeding Or Fertilizing Hedges
This is a task that can easily be over done. Any nitrogen based fertilizer will do such as 20:20:10 but the longer lasting ones which take 18/24 months are better as they are regulated by the weather and moisture therefore release slowly.

Woodburning Chart
If you are one of those lucky people that lead an eco lifestyle (VERY jealous if you are) and want to buy trees to burn, then maybe our wood burning chart (excel spread sheet) will help you decide. Ash, Eucalyptus Gunnii and Willow are worth looking at for their growth rates and calorific values.

Planting Tool
If you are looking to plant lots of plug plant or cell grown trees (the 10-40cm-ish) size range then maybe you should consider our tree planting tool. Tree planting rates of over 700 per day achievable.

Adding A Bit Of Colour And Attract Wildlife
Honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) is very attractive, fragrant and attracts more wildlife to your garden. A bit on the vigorous side but worth the effort. A great addition to your project.

Tree Spacing
Broadleaf wood planting would be around 3m between each tree. Christmas tree planting for a commercial crop is around 1m.

Factors Detrimental To Cell Grown Trees
Too much/little water, animal Urine, excessive wind exposure (will slow growth), salt spray, frost on new growth, herbicide drift and over application of fertilizer.

Canker On Willow Trees
Canker can show itself in the form of black leaves and bark, almost looking like they have been burnt. This is something transmitted by the weather, birds and animals etc and affects thin barked trees in particular. It can get it through wounds to the tree and there is no effective treatment other than cutting the diseased part out and allowing the tree to grow again.

Keeping the tree healthy in the first few years will help the tree fight off infection so fertilise and control weed infestation.

Water Logged Conditions And Willow Trees
So long as you do not have permanent standing water e.g. your local diving and sailing club meets on your lawn then Willow, Alder, Birch and Poplar will be ok to plant and maybe even help lower the level.

Willow Tree Sexing
We are unable to provide the sex of the Willow Trees. We have tried watching to see which toilet they go into but as tree bladders go, these are pretty resilient. Our "watcher" needed to go before they did and gave up.
