Hybrid Poplars are one of the fastest-growing shade trees. They can grow 5-8 feet per year making them excellent screens. The large silvery-green leaves provide quick shade while the tree’s oval shape enhances your property. Because they grow fast, poplars can be used in a variety of ways. They can be grown along stream banks, planted as windbreaks, cut for firewood, and as a habitat for various species of birds.
