Block the Wind... Lower Your Heating Bills... Enjoy Your Yard Summer & Winter. Plant 5-8 feet apart and you will quickly have a dense barrier that can reach 60 ft or more.

Nothing stops the wind faster. They commonly grow 6 feet a year and some people report growth rates of 9-12 ft. You often see Lombardy's planted around farm fields to keep top soil from blowing away. They will work just as effectively for your home.

Mediteranian look adds value to your property. They grow in an elegant columnar fashion. Use them to line your driveway, a road or the edges of your property. Line your Northern borders and feel like you moved your home hundreds of miles to the South.

You get a large solid wall, without taking up a lot of yard space. The unusual, upward-sloping branches form a stunning, columnar outline. Songbirds particularly love these trees for nesting and shelter.

Plant today and in no time you'll enjoy watching the silver green leaves and unusual branches swaying in the breeze. Lombardy Poplar trees are not evergreens, but they continue to provide great wind blockage and privacy throughout the year.

Fast, Pretty, but limited Life!
I have used these trees for years, but be warned, they have a limited life span. Also they have an very intrusive root system.

I have found Lombardy poplars growing from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the desert southwest ,Phoenix, AZ,. Northern California and Nevada are laced with lombardies. The 6 foot lombardies I purchased in February are now ,at the end of the Phoenix, AZ growing season, about 10-12 feet tall. A great fast-grower for screening a fence line or as a windbreak. Very popular with many species of birds. You can find lombardies as specimen tree

I have planted the Lombardy Poplar Trees for privacy from the two story house behind us and as a wind break. The trees have grown at least 8 feet in the one year that I have had them. I hope that they continue to grow until I have a total privacy wall behind our house.
December 31, 2012
I purchased seven of this trees almost 3 years ago. they were around 4 ft at the time. Today they are 15 to 20 FT tall. The only problem is that one of the trees looks different then the others. I suspect that it's of the same ""family"" but the leaves are smaller and the tree struggles in the Kasas heat, loosing is leaves by july everyear.

We bought these trees to make a privacy fence between us and our neighbors. They are growing great. All but one has grown 3 feet in the first year.
December 31, 2012
wonderful trees. beautiful shape. indeed fast growing! , much more so when grown on the south side of our house. the one grown on the north side of our house has lagged in growth compared-- but not disappointingly so., the southside tree is providing summer shade already and has cooled the room that otherwise was so hot in the summer. thank you for a beautiful and functional tree that was quite affordable. These California trees look great

Great for borders around the yard.
The trees grow 5 to 8 feet per year and are great for seclusion. I keep the bottom trimmed up to 5 feet for mowing behind. The are susceptible to decease in the roots. make sure and feed them with 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 liquid fertilizer.

I planted these Lombardy Poplar trees about two and a half years ago and in their first season were subjected to three months of very strong winds. Despite that they are brilliant, beyond my expectations. I would suggest wind protection and annual fertilizing to promote healthy growth. I cant wait until next year to see how much more they progress

Very fast growing and hardy. Would recomend

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Lombardy Poplar

Lombardy Poplar Planting Diretions Your Lombardy Poplar trees will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Lombardy Poplars prefer full sunlight, but can tolerate shade. Plant your Lombardy Poplar Trees about 8 feet apart to create a wind breaking privacy screen.

Lombardy Poplars will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Make sure that your Lombardy Poplars don't sit in a low area of your yard that collects standing water. Your soil should be kept moist, but not over saturated.

Every year in the early Spring and early Fall fertilize your Lombardy Poplar Trees with a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. We recommend using formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.

How close to a fence can I plant this tree?
Ashley Y on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I planted 12 of these around the fence about 3 feet apart from each tree and fence. Wide enough that I can mow behind them.
How far from the fence do you plant the tree?
carrie n on Apr 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would plant them 5-8 feet away from the fence.
Hi how tall is the trunk generally before the green starts? I guess my main question is how big would the open space be if you were using for a privacy fence? Plant and care says 8' apart then the top description says about 5 ' apart. The top pic looks great but the bottom ones look like they could be thin/skinnier. Thanks for your help

How much water do they require and what do the roots do?
Mark W on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We water them three times a week on a drip system for 15 minutes. During the first six months we did an additional hand watering -- probably 2 gallons each once a week. We've had them about 18 months now and they are full of leaves and about 8 feet tall.

How close to a fence can these be planted? Can they be planted near a driveway (root issues)? thanks.
GoodNeighbor on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would not plant close to a driveway as they have pretty long roots to hold up the tall narrow tree.

I love in Folsom, California (near Sacramento) - Do these trees have leaves year round?
Heather D on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not likely, it gets cold enough there to have leaves change & fall. I live over the hill in Carson, which is colder but they definitely change and fall here.
Are they like evergreen that stays green in winter?
privacy trees on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, poplars have a beautiful yellow fall color like in the picture and they will loose their foliage... A deciduous tree :-)

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
