Only when the last tree has been cut down,

Only when the last river has been poisoned,

Only when the last fish has been caught,

Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Cree Indian Prophecy

Black Maul Willow

Salix trianda 'Black Maul'

Other names for species: Almond leaved willow.

Bark of new growth is very dark. Varieties of this willow are used world wide for basketry.

Left on it's own, Black Maul grows into a large shrub/multi-stem tree. If cut back to the ground, it will produce a thicket of 6-8 foot rods suitable for basket making, and the finer parts of willow furniture.

If you are landscaping with willow, this is a good contrast specimen to alternate with a red or yellow stem variety.
