The tree can reach up to the height of 175 feet and 53 m. The tree can be found in the U.S from southern Main

Willow Trees leaves look very droopy when you look at it.  When the Willow Tree is compared to other trees their lifespan is shorter. Their height and width can be 35-50 feet.The fruit of the tree looks like a small brown capsule. It is half-inch long. Beautiful baskets are woven using the willow stems. Willow Trees have a short trunk. Willows usually grow near water. The Kumeyaay girls or women used the bark for skirts! Isn’t that fascinating.

Coast Live Oak Tree is a beautiful evergreen oak that grows nicely along S.E. coast of the U.S. it can also be seen in dry parts of Texas. It can grow to be 50 feet(15 meters) tall.
