Acute willow is a very fast growing small tree that can reach growth rates of up to 6 feet per year. It's a great choice for developing a quick, hardy shelterbelt, windbreak or privacy screen and requires almost no maintenance. Acute willow will grow multi-stemmed but can be pruned to a single stem for a smaller footprint.
