Willow is a very helpful plant, being environmentally used “for biofiltration, constructed wetlands, ecological wastewater treatment…slope stabilisation, soil erosion control…soil building, soil reclamation” and many more! That’s a lot of uses for one plant!

In spiritual belief systems, willow “is one of the ‘Four Species’ used in a ceremony on the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.  In Buddhism, a willow branch is one of the chief attributes of Kwan Yin, the bodhisattva of compassion…In the Wiccan Rede, it is described as…guiding the dead to the afterlife.  Christian churches in northwestern Europe often used willow branches in place of palms in the ceremonies on Palm Sunday.

Willow is also used widely in art, “as charcoal (for drawing) and in living sculptures.  Living sculptures are created from live willow rods planted in the ground and woven into shapes such as domes and tunnels.  Willow stems are used to weave baskets and 3 dimensional sculptures such as animals and figures.  Willow stems are also used to create garden features such as decorative panel and obelisks.”
