Scarlet Willow Trees

The Red Willow tree - Salix alba 'Chermesina' or ' Britzensis' - is also called Coral Bark Willow. The fantastic, yellow, red and orange colour of the young branches makes a great winter display. These trees are usually pollarded to encourage new growth. Scarlet Willow can reach a height of about 20 metres.

How Standard Trees are Measured: All our standards, are graded by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Standard trees are 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us.
