How to Draw a Willow Tree
Willow trees and shrubs are native to the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, with the weeping willow being the most well-known, with its branches drooping to the ground. Willow bark was chewed by some Native Americans as a headache remedy.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Willow Tree
Begin by sketching the trunk and each of the roots. Next, texture the leaves with single “U” shaped lines and short chains of connected lines. Finally, sketch the roughly “V” shaped boughs and the side of the crown.
How do you shape a willow tree?
The steps for shaping a willow tree are as follows:
- Remove any damaged or broken branches.
- As a central leader, choose a tall, upright stem near the top of the tree and remove competing stems.
- Remove branches that grow up instead of out.
How do you grow a willow tree from a branch?
Take a healthy branch from a willow tree and place it in moist soil in the spring or late winter; if the soil stays moist, the stem should form roots in a month or so and have a good root system by the end of the growing season.
Do willow trees have deep roots?
Disturbing the soil around your willow can damage its roots, weakening the tree and leaving it vulnerable to further damage from insects, disease, or weather.
