The Q&A Archives: Acid Loving Trees

Question: What trees like acid soil? I especially need to know about Weeping Willow, Plum and Sycamore.

Answer: The trees you list will grow in acidic soils (pH 6.0 or below). Other candidates for acid soils include larch, magnolia, mountain ash, cornus kousa (dogwood), and amelanchier. For even more suggestions, consult the book "Right Plant, Right Place", published by Summit Books (ISBN# 0-671-52396-1).
