Quaking Aspen

Populus tremuloides

New for 2023!

Quaking Aspen is the most widely distributed tree across North America. This striking tree is known for its fluttering leaves, white bark and yellow fall color. It occurs in a variety of soil conditions, and is a great restoration species that is best planted away from structures and drain fields to avoid damage from its aggressive roots. A lovely landscape choice for screening.
