Fast-Growing Tree with Unique Leaves

The Quaking Aspen is a fast-growing tree with outstanding fall color.  Plant a row of them along your driveway or just one as a focal point in your front yard.
Your Quaking Aspen has many attractive features, but one of the most endearing is what gives it its name.  The Aspen’s ability to “quake” has been admired and memorialized by writers and poets for generations. 

Imagine sitting beneath your Aspen on a summer day with the slightest of warm breezes ruffling your hair.  Hear the soft rustle of the heart-shaped leaves above you.  Look up to see the deep green leaves sparkle in the mottled sunlight as they twist and turn on the flat leaf stalks that catch the drifting air.  

Few experiences capture the magic of nature so well as a Quaking Aspen dancing on a summer breeze. 
Quaking Aspens grow 20-50 feet tall with a narrow, rounded crown.  You’ll love their unique bark that is very light in color and turns a chalky white as it ages.  In the fall, your Aspen will turn to shades of zestful yellow and orange, brightening your fall landscape as winter approaches.
The Quaking Aspen is one of the most widely distributed trees in North America.  It’s tolerant of many soil types, and doesn’t require a lot of special care.  Pioneers and American Indians used Aspen bark for various medicinal purposes and wildlife love them. 
Overall, the Quaking Aspen is a lovely landscape tree with uniquely endearing features.  The quaking leaves and the golden fall colors will brighten any landscape!

So far... so good Review by Ryan
I ordered 15 Quakies and I got these a little earlier than I expected and I had to have them delivered to my house near phoenix about the middle of april. They are being planted at our mountain cabin (about 7000 ft elev) but when they arrived here in phx, half of them were already pushing out green leaves, probably because it is already so warm here in the valley. I took them up to the mountains 4 days after I got them and planted them into 15 gal containers for now and placed them in an elk-proof corral until I get them tall enough to plant on their own and not get devoured by the wildlife. The packaging was very impressive and everything arrived unscathed and healthy. The trees (twigs really) are a true 6-7 feet tall and trunks range from 3/8" to 3/4" in diameter. After 2 weeks, the green leaf buds have gone and seem to be coming back already. I have bought a lot of trees and plants from the big box home improvement stores over the years and I was a little leery of buying bare root trees online. I think I may just be done buying locally from here out. The selection at HD and Lowes sucks, they cost too much (4-5x the cost), and the quality does not compare to what I got from Nature Hills. I'm off to buy some more trees online!!
Clump form Review by Deborah G
I planted a clump style Quaking Aspen 2 years ago. It is growing fast and really starting to take shape. I love it so far.
Didn't know they would be so big Review by erin
I was quite shocked when I saw Federal Express delivering such tall boxes. You guys did a great job packing these trees. They surpassed my expectations & look forward to ordering from you guys again. Thanks!
Quaking Aspen Review by Colwt2b
I like others fell for the Aspen many years ago while visiting Colorado in the Fall. We planted our tree last year and today it is well over 10 feet tall and the leaves flutter in the wind making it just like being in Colorado except for the high temps and humidity.I was not sure about the Aspen and Iowa weather but so far so good. Waiting for this Fall and hopefully the changing of leaf color to golden (almost like a Iowa Hawkeye) color.
Aspen problems Review by Peaches1
I too love the Aspen and they are lovely but mine are 15 years old and I am losing them to scale and so I will not put them in my yard anymore. I have to spray them and put systemic around them in the spring. I have lost 2 so far and probably another two next spring.
