I have what looks like a tree growing in my flower bed and when I checked with the nursery, they said it is a Laurel Leaf Willow and can grow to 40 ft. I live in Winnipeg, Canada and willow roots head for water, so should I throw it out, or give it to someone I don't like!! I like willows but they really belong out in the country. I don't know how it got in my flower bed, other than maybe a bird dropped a seen there.

I think you're instincts are right! Particularly if it's anywhere near the house and its weeping tiles or drains, I'd evict it!

I have a huge laurel leaf willow growing in my backyard about 10 feet from my original house foundation. It is probably about 30 years ago and I dearly love it. I have no problem with invasive roots. The tree is however a long distance away from the water/sewer lines which come inon the other side of the house at the front. It is a great tree but truely probably way to big for the average city lot.
