Populus tremuloides

Quaking Aspen

Light, airy leaves rustling in even the slightest breeze create the delicate sound of Poplars and the smaller-growing Aspens. Grown commercially, their slender gray trunks are cut for pulpwood. Rapid-growing, they are frequently planted along avenues and in dry prairie regions for windbreaks and screens. Position them where their long roots will not clog drains or crack pavement. Tolerant of drought, city conditions and salt spray. Prone to rust, canker, scale and several other insects. Prune only in summer.
