Littletree willow is highly variable, including low shrubs less than 30 cm tall and trees which are 9 m tall.  In many regions, littletree willow is one of the first shrubs to invade recently burned woodland. Littletree willow can be found in forests, open meadows, rivers, streams and floodplains. It often forms dense thickets near water.
