Please ID this really big, really old tree
This tree has been growing in this park for god knows how long. It survived what we call here the "green sky storm", which was a ectremely severe microburst storm in 96 which wiped out 1/4 of the cities street trees, mostly maples.
I remember going to this park, which is less them 400M from my parents house, and seeing at least 12 very old maples crashed down to the ground or litterally ripped out of the ground.
This tree, which I think may be some sort of willow survived with only one or two of the lower branches falling. Seeing how old it is i can only assume this tree has seen the worst this area has to offer and want to propagate it.
Any guess can help. I just want to know if trying to grow it from cuttings is even an option
