Product Overview

Quaking Aspen – A Deciduous Tree Native to Colder Regions

Why Quaking Aspen (Populus Tremuloides)?

Native to the colder regions of North America, the deciduous Populus Tremuloides tree is one of several species collectively known by the common names quaking aspen, American aspen, trembling aspen, golden aspen, white poplar, trembling poplar, and popple. The species reproduce by sending out new roots, which results in the formation of enormous clonal groves. Because new growth emerges from adventitious buds on the parent root system, these roots are not rhizomes (the ortet).

Much like other poplar species, Aspens are extensively used in camping areas because they are readily available, inexpensive, and not often utilized in timber construction.

Native Americans use aspen as a source of nutrition in their diet. The inner bark is first chopped into strips, then dried, and crushed before being combined with starches to make bread or mush.

Because aspen engages in vegetative regeneration, trees are almost identical to one another, and if anything, that kills one of the trees would ultimately destroy all of the trees in the group.

    So far so good!

    I am excited to have received my trees this season, as I ordered a couple days after the order cut-off I think. I have always wanted a quaking aspen in ND, and the price was right for my budget. The tree is leafing out only 3 days after planting! Thank you for great service, TreeStore!

    We saw leaves growing the very nest day after planting. Well done. Looking forward to more purchases in the future.

    I couldn’t believe how well these trees were packaged. After being in the ground for only a couple days the leaves are already starting to bloom. I will most definitely be placing another order with the tree store.

    I always wanted a Aspen tree here in NC. It came in a box and the roots were in a plastic bag that kept the moisture on the roots during travel. I planted it in the yard and its now starting to put on leaves. Very healthy looking little tree. I highly recommend!

    Buy with confidence. The Tree Store is serious in business. I received two healthy aspen trees, one for free since I had a minor issue with shipping the first tree. I highly recommend them.
