About the Quaking Aspen:

The Quaking Aspen tree, Poplus tremuloides, is the most widely distributed tree in North America. It is known by many common names: trembling aspen, golden aspen, mountain aspen. This deciduous tree grows on many soil types, especially sandy and gravelly slopes, and it is quick to pioneer disturbed sites where there is disturbed soil. Quaking Aspen trees are fast growing and very hardy.

Poplus tremuloides provides benefits for many kinds of wildlife. It will grow both as a single or multi-stemmed tree. The Aspen is esthetically appealing with light bark, trembling leaves, and yellow fall color.
