Hybrid Poplar

Populus Deltoides / Populus Nigra

The name of the game is speed with the Hybrid Poplar.  An extremely fast grower, this cottonless hybrid is a cross between an Eastern Cottonwood and a European Black Poplar.  This tree has been known to grow 5 to 8 feet in one year once established.  The Hybrid Poplar grows into a attractive shade tree with a heavy, broad crown, silvery-green leaves and smooth bark.  For such a fast grower, the life span is over 35 years, which gives you quick cover and gives other trees a chance to fill in in the meantime.  This is a good choice for quick tree lines and is a popular choice for sustainable firewood plots.  Grows in most soil conditions as long as there is adequate moisture.

We offer these trees as rooted cuttings.  The Hybrid Polar can bring woods to your land practically before your eyes. With its extreme growth rate, this makes a good choice for harvesting and replanting for a sustainable firewood plot. This hybrid can be harvested for firewood in 5 to 8 years. This Polar makes a fair choice for fireplace firewood due to its heat output and an excellent choice for campfire wood. Designed for fast windbreaks and displays great disease resistance. Can handle poor and moist soil conditions, but will not do well in dry areas with little moisture.
