The name “poplar” is used interchangeably to identify several species of trees in the Populus genus which share similar characteristics.  This genus includes Cottonwoods, Poplars and Aspens, all of which are sometimes referred to as “poplars”.  There are about 25 species which are native to North America although European species thrive here in Ontario also. 

Some popular species within the genus include:  Abele or White Poplar; Aspen or Quaking Aspen Poplar; Balm of Gilead Poplar; Black Cottonwood Poplar; Black Poplar; Carolina Poplar; Cotton Poplar; Lance Leaved Cottonwood Poplar; Large Toothed Aspen Poplar; Lombardy Poplar; Mexican Cottonwood Poplar; Narrow Leaved Cottonwood Poplar; and Swamp Cottonwood Poplar.

Adding to the list of “poplars” are trees that are the result if interbreeding.  Poplar species can be bred for special characteristics which include shape, disease resistance and drought tolerance.

 

Trembling or Quaking Aspen
[Populus tremulides]

Aspen trees are the most widely distributed species of tree in North America .  Common names include:  “Trembling Aspen, Quaking Aspen, Golden Aspen, Quiver-leaf Aspen , Small-toothed Aspen , Canadian Aspen, Quakie, and Popple”.  Some have called the Aspen “White Poplar”.  Often it, together with Paper Birch, is the first species of tree to grow in heavily cut or burnt areas.  It is intolerant of shade and does not grow in dense woods.  

Leaves are described as circular, heart or triangular in shape, having small teeth at the end of a long, flat stem which tremble and flutter with the slightest breeze.   Leaves are somewhat shiny green above and a dull yellow-green beneath.  Fall colours are yellow.

Trees will grow to be about 40 - 80 feet but may reach heights of 100 feet!  The trunks of Aspen trees are a smooth whitish green with bands of bumps and are 10-16 in diameter.  As the tree ages, the bark becomes gray/brown and rough and furrowed near the base.

 

 

 

Fun fact, did you know...  

That Aspen is one of the traditional trees used to makes stakes against vampires?

The Wonder 
of Trees


 

 

 

"Even if I knew 
that tomorrow 
the world 
would go to pieces, 
I would still plant 
my apple tree."

~ Martin Luther ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I think that I 
shall never see
A poem as lovely
as a tree.

A tree whose hungry 
mouth is pressed,
Against the earth's 
sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks 
at God all day
And lifts her leafy 
arms to pray;

A tree that may 
in Summer wear
A nest of robins
 in her hair;

Upon whose bosom 
snow has lain;
Who intimately 
lives with rain.

Poems are made 
by fools like me,
but only God 
can make a tree."

~ Joyce Kilmer ~
"Trees" 1914

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The best time
to plant a tree
was 20 years ago.
The next best
time is now."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
