BOTANICAL NAME: Populus tremula 'Erecta'
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. If you want a faster screen consider two rows of these stagered and it will fill in faster and you should not have issues later on. These are best practice planting methods by us, but you by no means have to follow them, we at Calgary Plants are just trying to ensure the best health of your new trees. Happy planting!
