DESCRIPTION: Most popular narrow columnar tree used in urban landscapes. Small serrated oval leaves are reddish-green in spring, matures to green then turns a nice red and yellow colour in fall. If using as a screen or hedge, spacing should be atleast 1.5-1.8 meters ( or 5-6 feet ) centre to centre to help prevent plant issues. This spacing will ensure proper screening for you while also allowing to prevent disease and create a proper healthy environment for the aspens.
