Fast growing, upright, hardy tree. Rough bark with dark, shiny leaves that turn yellow in fall. Mainly used as shelterbelt tree on acreages. Plant 15′ apart when using as a windbreak. Poplars grow best in moist, rich soil but can grow in a wide variety of soils and are very adaptable. Fertilize in spring with a good compost or all purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges.
