Quaking Aspen

Populus tremuloides


See description and details below.


Northern Idaho seed sources has resistance to black spot, a fungal disease that affects aspen in the Willamette Valley.  Aspen forms a dense root system, spreading quickly in eroded or burned areas, good for soil reclamation projects.   Leaf design allows the small leaves to flutter with the slightest breeze.  Leaves turn yellow/gold in the fall.  Relatively short lived tree.
