Beautiful old willows line the edges of many fields in this valley. Some were deliberately planted as windbreaks. Some grew spontaneously along ditches and streams, where moisture-seeking seeds found their way. Still others began their lives as fenceposts!
Willows are prolific. Left unchecked, they grow dense, and farmers thin them out when they clog ditches or encroach on fields. Sometimes cut limbs find new life--literally-in fencerows. If they are still green when put back in the ground, they will often sprout limbs and grow into new trees.
