Angel Field Weeping Willow Trees
These Native Americans' famous Weeping Willow "Salix babylonica" Transplants is the Historical Tree they used to place food and winter vegetables as many American worked hard to get to their freedom at Fort Monroes in Virginia during the Civil War. Our Weeping Willow Tree is known for its 60-foot-tall heights followed by drooping limbs that are just breath taken of true history and safety as the branches sweep the ground, especially with raindrops falling from the leaves like tears of shade. Its name comes from the raindrops falling from its leaves in spring as Native Americans used as Medication to control the pain, taught to the Contraband Slaves of Fort Monroe; who did not follow the Trail of Tears in the early 1800s.
These trees' lifespan is up is over 50 years.
Be cautious not to plant near septic systems or building foundations. Their roots have been known to cause damage or get infestations of gypsy moths causing a fungus named Venturia saliciperda, which causes blackish-brown spots on the leaves.
