Lombardy Poplar

Fast-Growing Wind Break

The Lombardy Poplar is a fast-growing deciduous tree.   Save winter heating costs by planting a few as a windbreak or ensure your privacy with a natural, living fence.
From the first year you plant your Lombardy Poplar you’ll be amazed by its growth and appearance.  Watch as it its branches seem to stretch toward the sky at a rate of 1-5 feet each year! 

Plant them 5’ to 8’ apart and absorb the beauty of the Lombardy’s summer display.  Stand anywhere in your yard on a breezy day and relax to the pure music of nature that only its dancing leaves can compose. 

You’ll be charmed by the silvery underside of its bright green, heart-shaped leaves catch the light in the radiant sun.  The cool slide into autumn brings with it refreshing shades of yellow as your Lombardy sheds its summer coat in preparation for winter.
The Lombardy has become one of the most popular trees in America.  It was introduced into the United States for its ornamental properties and as a useful windbreak.  Several types of birds enjoy nesting in its branches for the protection it provides. 

Many feel that the Lombardy have an elegant appearance with their slender, columnar shape that can reach more than 60 feet into the sky.   It will likewise grace your home with its dignity and charm.

Super Product Review by Omaha, NE Customer
I bought 7 of these trees from this site to put along my back propertyline to block out my neighbor's unsightly alley/yard. These have grown so fast and the tree bed adds a beautiful touch to our landscape. All 7 have made it nearly 4 years, although one had a rough start but is now growing well.
Beautiful trees Review by Tomorrow
I bought a house that has 2 of these that were planted in 1972. They are about 65-75 ' tall. They are beautiful trees that add character to any landscape. The only downside i can think of is that only one of my poplars send off suckers. But I guess that gives me free trees!!
Real fast growing Review by Susan B
Pretty tickled by how fast my Lombardi Poplars are growing. Never bought bare root trees before. SO much easier to plant & it seems that they got rooted in and starting growing faster than potted trees I've planted in the past.
Windbreak Review by Farmer Brown
Planted 3 rows of these Lombardy trees to start my windbreak for my yard in the country. Also planted some Col. blue spruce in front. The poplars are so fast growing and they are protecting the spruce trees, and my yard, just fine.
Great shape Review by Happy in Georgia
My trees arrived in excellent shape and I can't wait for them to grow along my property line. The way the trees were packed made sure that they could not be damaged in shipment and would stay moist. Very pleased!
