Goat Willow

This species has very light, fluffy seeds which drift for miles. If left unpruned it will make a small to medium sized tree. If you don't have the space for it I'd rip it out now - don't just cut it off at the base or it'll grow back! For smaller gardens a variety called Salix caprea 'Pendula' is available in most garden centres/nurseries. It has a weeping habit and doesn't grow as large.
Kind Regards
Vinny
