Tree identification

Could anyone please help to identify this tree in my garden, it was bought as part of an Japanese Acer collection from wowcher but I can’t find an acer online that matches so may be something else. Thank you

    Willow, probably Goat Willow

    I agree - there's masses of it where I walk my dog over the fields.
    Definitely not a keeper
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    It has fluffy seeds that drift on the breeze and then land and take roots in pots where other plants are growing ... a real interloper  :/

  • Thank you, I’m shocked as it was bought as part of a Japanese acer collection and actually looks like a nice little tree 😮

    @xssx_lisa_xssx If you ordered Japanese Acers that is not what you received . Can you contact the seller maybe. This sort of thing needs to be stopped, you have paid for something you didn't get. Welcome to the forum and good luck!
  • Thank you all for confirming my suspicions 😂

    Tell them it's Salix caprea.

    Acer leaves are opposite so cannot possibly be an Acer.
    Agree with all others ....Salix caprea...common name Goat willow!
