The Q&A Archives: Weeping Willow

Question: I have heard that a good place to plant weeping willows is at the end of septic system lines. Is this true, if so how far from the lines?

Answer: It's true that roots of willows seek out water, but they're terribly invasive and will ruin a drainfield in no time at all. I'd keep willow trees far, far away from septic lines!
