The willow is a type of above ground tree that is only found near rivers, pools or other water. It is found in nearly any biome that has trees. Like the overwhelming majority of overland trees, willow wood is brown and produces brown products.
This tree also has the 4th lightest type of wood in the game. The kapok tree is third with a density of 260, candlenut is second with 140, and feather trees are first with a density of 100. Willows, however, have the benefit of growing nearly everywhere.
