Willow is a deciduous tree found primarily in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Almost all willows take root very readily, either from cuttings or even where broken branches are left lying on the ground. This tree has the unique ability to regenerate from the same crown for 30 to 40 years. Once harvested, it can grow back to the same height in a year. Willow has been grown on the Somerset levels for centuries and as it regenerates easily once harvested, it has become a popular sustainable choice.
