Willow Trees Will Make You Weep

If you are trying to think of a good tree to plant in your front yard, may I suggest that you skip the Willow Tree? They can look nice, but underneath that billowy willow is a tree that has a very aggressive root structure that can damage your sewer and irrigation pipes, as well as grow under your driveway and sidewalk making them cracked and uneven.

In my neighborhood there are several very large willow trees in front yards. The branches are always hanging over the sidewalk making it difficult to pass. One of my neighbors just paid over $1000 to have his willow tree removed from the front yard because it was affecting the water main to the house. 
In addition to the willow, this article mentions 11 Trees You Should Never Plant in Your Yard. Check it out and be wise in planting.
