The Golden Willow is a variety of the White Willow that features intense yellow-orange new growth branches. For this reason, it is often planted in rows and constantly pollarded, to crop the new branches every one or two years for the basketwork production. The pollarding creates a very peculiar shape which has become a landmark of the European countryside landscape, especially in the Winter, when the yellow-orange branches stand out above the white snow.
