White Oak
Golden Weeping Willow

White Oak is large, long-lived tree with an irregular trunk divided into spreading, often horizontal, stout branches. A highly adaptable tree, White Oak features green acorns and beautiful green leaves that turn red-purple in the fall.

The Golden Weeping Willow is a cultivar with bright yellow twigs and an attractive weeping shape. It is one of the most popular willows, with high ornamental value.

The Golden Weeping Willow has glossy green foliage during the spring and summer months, then the leaves turn a golden-yellow in the fall. The brown bark is furrowed and the overhanging branches keep their yellow tone, so they also have significant winter interest.
