One of the fastest growing and most attractive shade trees you can find.
New home builders love to use our Poplars as front yard shade trees. They quickly become established and can add thousands to a homes value. Hybrid Poplars have a pleasing oval shape that complements any property.
You can plant these Poplars wherever you need fast shade or privacy. They’ve been known to grow up to 8 ft. in a single year. At 40-50 feet, you can strategically plant them to block the direct sunlight... dramatically lowering your air conditioning costs. In the winter, they drop their dense green foliage, letting through sunlight when it’s needed most.
When you receive your trees, they don't look like much. Plant them 8-10 feet apart and stand back. They fill out faster than most hedge trees we know of... typically forming into a thick green wall by the end of the first full growing season.
Beware – not all Hybrid Poplars are the same. Ours are bred for landscape purposes, not timber. So you get a better formed, long-lived tree.

|It's Easy to Plant your Superior Hybrid Poplar
Specific Directions for Superior Hybrid Poplar
Place your Hybrid Poplar Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Your Hybrid Poplar Tree will prefer to have at least six hours of sunlight a day. For a hedge or privacy screen plant your Hybrid Poplars about five feet apart and their foliage will quickly fill in.
Your Hybrid Poplar will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay. Although a pH balance over 8.0 can be harmful to your Hybrid Poplar Tree. Test your soil with a pH meter to find its pH balance. Keep your soil moist and not over saturated. Make sure that your soil is well draining. Usually Hybrid Poplar Trees don't require any fertilizer and grow fine on their own.
Hybrid Poplar Trees can handle wet conditions, but don't want to sit in standing water. Short term flooding is fine, as long as the water keeps moving. Try to mimic your natural environment for your tree, and only give it extra water during times of drought.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Superior Hybrid Poplar.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Superior Hybrid Poplar gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
