Trees are amazing
By Mary Friedel-Hunt

There is nothing like a weeping willow tree. Some people think they are dirty because they drop branches and leaves and their roots get twisted around water pipes or break up the foundations. They can grow up to 10 feet a year with roots spreading out to a distance equal to their 35-foot height. The weeping willow is a lovely tree. But then, I am a tree nut. A neighbor had a 50-foot tree cut down because it was dirty. She said it dropped branches and leaves all over the ground. I offered to clean those up but down came the tree.
