Salix bakko is a deciduous tree of 3-10m in height and 5-30cm in diameter that inhabits light, dry areas in hilly to mountainous districts. Alternate hypotaxis, leaves are shaped like an oblong, 5-17cm long, 3-7cm wide, with conspicuous dent wrinkles along veins on the upper surfaces, white curly hairs tingeing powdery white on the lower surfaces, and low wavy serrations on the margins. Dioecious: flower buds (winter buds) are significant and red-brown. Flowers thickly set themselves in oblong inflorescences that emerge before the leaves develop. The flower lacks petals.
