Quaking Aspen

Populus tremuloides

The Quaking Aspen has a beautiful light colored bark with glossy green leaves in summer.  The leaves shimmer and "quake" in the breeze displaying a spectacular show and a great fluttering sound.  Quaking Aspen leaves turn bright yellow in fall before falling and leaving its bark on display as winter interest.  This hardwood tree is common in the Rocky Mountains, through the upper Midwest and all of the Northeastern United States.  The tree is very cold tolerant and will grow in zones 2 to 7.

    Best time of year and planting recommendations for quaking aspens

    Thank you for your question. We find that the most successful time for planting is in the spring, due to the amount of natural rainfall that is typically available to the newly planted trees. Quaking Aspen thrive in average to moist soils. They will grow in most soil types, but their growth may be a bit slower in heavy clay. Any poplar tree should be protected from deer browsing, with at least a 6' tall physical barrier. If you purchase trees from us, consider the 6' Sunflex Grow Tubes that we sell. Not only will they protect the trees from deer and other animals, the trees will grow much faster due to the greenhouse effect that the tubes have on the trees. Thanks! CRN

The Quaking Aspen makes a great tree by itself in the landscape or planted in masses.  Place this tree around your patio or hammock and enjoy the sights and sounds of this beautiful hardwood.   This tree is not terribly shade tolerant and prefers full sun.  The Quaking Aspen is commonly used as a screen for slower growing trees.  

Common Uses:

  • Ornamental, beautiful bark, trembling leaves
  • Fast growing tree
  • Fall color
  • Excellent wildlife value

The leaves of the Aspen are eaten by deer, elk and snowshoe hare.  When the leaves fall in autumn, it's a favorite of deer into early winter.  Beavers use this tree for food and building material and grouse are drawn to the buds as a source of food in the winter.
