Lombardy Poplar

Fast Growing Privacy Wind Break


Height

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

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.

It's Easy to Plant your Lombardy Poplar

Specific Directions for Lombardy Poplar
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.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lombardy Poplar.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Lombardy Poplar gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Lombardy Poplar again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

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 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.

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.

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

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

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.

How far from the fence do you plant the tree?
carrie n on Apr 25, 2015
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: JT,
I've got four planted approximately 5 ft from my fence in the backyard. The trees are getting really wide and truthfully, I don't think I've allowed enough room between the fence and the trees. They grown at amazing rate! As for the driveway I do know planted anywhere near a road or driveway is a recipe for disaster. The roots will become a problem quickly so my advice is Do not plant near a. Driveway. Love the trees. I hope this helps

Will my Trees 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.





Most Trees 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.
