Please id yellow tree

Hi folks,

2 years ago, she pollarded this tree. However, I forgot to ask her what tree it is. It looks like a willow tree but not sure which type. I have Corkscrew Willow but all of the branches are hanging. I really like this tree since it's upright and single trunk. Thanks in advance!

Looks like a standard yellow-twigged weeping willow, except it's not weeping.

Not sure I helped. If it is WW, it should have been weeping some by now. I did the same thing to one of my WWs, and it looks the same -- except the "sprouts" are now weeping.

The common upright yellow willow is Salix alba var. vitellina. This is what the tree shown is likely to be.

Thanks for the id bboy! :)

I'm going to leave a mail in her mailbox and I'll ask if I can have a cutting of her willow tree.

Thanks,

Neil
