Gorgeous Native Tree Delivers An Incredible Experience

The well known Quaking Aspen (Populus tremuloides) is a national treasure. Generations of artists, poets and writers have been inspired by the fluttering heart-shaped leaves.

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.

Slender Quaking Aspens grow quickly with a narrow, rounded crown. In the fall, your Aspen will turn to shades of zestful yellow and orange, brightening your fall landscape as winter approaches. In winter, you'll love the fabulous textured bark that turns a chalky white as it ages. Pioneers and American Indians used Aspen bark for various medicinal purposes and wildlife love them.

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.

A single Quaking Aspen can be used as a specimen tree in a lawn area where it can easily be maintained. Get ready to fall in love! Use a straight row of them along a drive or to edge a property. Or you can plant a curving grove of Aspen trees. Be sure to include a winding path and an open space with comfy seating. Aspen natively like to sucker and colonize into groups and can be very successfully incorporated into today's naturalized, informal landscapes. What a gift for yourself, your friends and family.

(Commercial property owners... use this idea on corporate campuses for morale and to support green company branding!)

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. Order now for the best selection!
