Fast Growing Cold Hardy Tree

- Known for climate and soil adaptability
- Grows up to 5 ft per year!
- Gorgeous fall color

The Quaking Aspen is well known for thriving in cold climates and poor soil... but it's also a brightly colored tree with many desirable characteristics.

Your new tree will give you bright yellow leaves in the fall - stunning against its white bark.

Quaking Aspens, native to North America, are very popular in northern growing zones... and for good reason.

You know fall is on its way when your Aspen trees begin turning bright gold.

An amazing tree in every sense, the Quaking Aspen gets its name from its shimmering heart-shaped leaves. Called 'quaking' for its characteristic tremble or quake when a light breeze passes through the tree.

Grows best in Growing Zones 2-6

Aspens are a great, fast growing tree. I have planted them on a hill above my lawn and they have grown to 40 feet tall in ten years

The house I moved into had Quaking Aspen trees in the back yard. They are wonderful shade trees. However, the leaves began to fall at the end of June and kept falling until winter. My yard always had leaves in it

Nice Tree at First
I received a really nice looking tree, planted it and it started to bud and leaf out, but after about 2 Months it died, I was really looking forward to seeing the fall colors. Hope to get another one in the spring.

Quaking Aspen in WV
I can't really rate the growth rate, or hardiness yet as I just got the tree planted three days ago, however, there is already new growth on the tree after two weeks sitting in a shady spot waiting to be planted. I watered it daily since the summer heat is oppressive here in WV right now. I look forward to watching it grow and enjoying the dancing leaves!

too early to tell
Just got them. They were packaged well. But they are just big sticks at the present moment. A year from now will tell the truth.

Trees not doing well right now
Well. I was hoping for a lot better to be honest! I ordered 3 and they looked terrible when they arrived. One of them had dried up leaves. The other two look diseased. I planted them anyway but it's been two weeks roughly and they are not doing very well at all. On the up side fast growing trees have been very good and have offered to replace free of charge as I did report the problem and send pictures immediately. Still hoping they'll recover.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Quaking Aspen



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Quaking Aspen 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 Quaking Aspen again after the transplant is complete.

Is the quaking aspen weak wood as fast growing trees so often are and break in a strong wind?
Julie H on Feb 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, Aspens are extremely robust and study. They are very resistant to high winds the leaves are small and shaped like hearts and distribute the wind well. I chose these Aspens over birch trees because they are more hardy and not brittle like birch trees - especially river birch trees. Hope this helps!

Will this tree grow in zone 8?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It isn't recommended. The recommended zones are 1 through 7. I live in zone 7 and the Quaking Aspen does well. I would think that there is a risk that zone 8 may be too warm. However, if you keep the tree well watered, you may get away with it.
Will this tree grow in central Illnois ?
Stephen N on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought ten last summer, and only one made it through the brutally hot summer and rough winter we had. I personally don;t think it was the ability for the plant to survive, I think the quality of the little sapplings I received was not very good to start with. So I now have one $300 aspen tree trying to set itself into place.
