Howdy!

From a distance, looks like a black willow. Water loving native tree. Typically along creek or pond edges. Birds and wind can bring in the seeds. Uses a bunch of water, as it is a rapid grower. Long-term, not a long lived tree. 20-30 years and it starts falling apart. Hope this helps.

Good day,
