Classic Shade Tree Grows up to 8 feet per year

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 home's 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.

Tree looks great in our front yard. Would recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a tree for their home. Delivery was quick & tree was healthy when it arrived. Would definitely use fast-growing-trees again!

So far totally impressed.
So far I’m totally impressed I ordered these 2 trees on a Friday and they told me they would be delivered Friday the following week and they got delivered on Thursday the following week they were in great shape when they got here and my contractor got them in the ground the same day and they’re growing like wildfire and doing awesome a month and a half later . I ordered the 6 foot tall trees and if they continue to grow like this and grow the way the website says they’re expected to grow these trees will be about 15 foot tall a year from now. I’m excited to see if they do. I will probably buy from this company again I am now actually thinking about adding some privacy trees further out on the perimeter of the yard and maybe a small fruit type tree that can be grown in a pot to add to a new patio I’m having built on the front of my house.
This is what they look like today about a month and a half later
This is how they looked the first day they arrived and got planted the same day

On the fence
Arrived with very few leaves about six weeks ago. Planted immediately & it has a few more leaves. Will have to give it more time too see if it’s going to grow. Next time will purchase a tree locally. I did purchase a Maple tree that arrived in much better shape and is doing well.

So far so good.
They came just like Fast-Growing-Trees said they would. Two sticks with a few leaves. Unfortunately Fedex broke almost two feet off one of my trees. Put them in the ground anyway and even in the Texas Summer; both are doing really well. The one that made it here was right at 6ft, it's now over 7. And the one that was broken down to 4.5 is back to 6. Can't wait to see these things explode in Spring.

Too soon to tell. Planted correctly exactly 30 days ago. Probably had initial struggles with heat but now seems to be taking off. Leads growing. Smaller branches expanding. For 30 days i am satisfied but the next 3-4 months will be the true guage!!

Satisfied with optimism
Trees are growing well but that being said... I called in to fast growing trees because when I received my 2 hybrid poplar trees both had the tops (6”-12”) broke off in shipping. I recommended a stiffer or larger pot so it holds better with the zip tie attaching it to the box. I say that because I have ordered 2 previous times equaling over 20 trees and they were perfect ( growing great,very satisfied). Fast growing trees immediately sent 2 replacements at NO cost they did look better 1 was perfect but the other the top 3” was bent over to where it did turn black and fall off and from being loose in shipping that 1 most of the dirt was off the roots and throughout the box (but both are growing well) and don’t get me wrong I am happy and will order again in the future. I Just hope they tweek the packaging a bit or maybe it was the distance in shipping nearly 2000 miles and bad luck on my part.

The tree has grown over a foot. It has four new branches and many leaves of a beautiful bright green.
The tree arrived well packed and yes, would recommend buying the hybrid poplar or any other tree. The following week I sent for an empress tree. I am very happy with my trees and looking forward to seeing they grow.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Superior Hybrid Poplar

Superior Hybrid Poplar Planting Diretions

Populus is a genus of deciduous flowering plant. They are native to most of the Northern Hemisphere. A “hybrid” plant is produced when pollen of one species is used to fertilize flowers of another species. Therefore, a Hybrid Poplar is a Populus tree resulting from the combining, either naturally or artificially, of various Poplar species. Hybrid Poplars are among the fastest-growing trees in North America. Hybrid Poplars are not usually desirable in many landscapes but can be of major importance under certain forestry conditions. Logs from the Populus are a common environment for Shiitake mushrooms to reside and were once used in Italy as a popular art medium; the most famous example of which is the canvas used to paint the Mona Lisa.


Seasonal information: Be sure to plant your Hybrid Poplar tree at least six weeks before your first frost. This will give the tree a chance to adjust to its new environment. If you are experiencing extreme heat, place your potted tree in a well-shaded area, such as a garage, or plant it in a well-shaded area in your lawn. Once older, your tree will be able to handle these temperatures. Typically, the Hybrid Poplar do not experience much growth during times of extreme temperatures.


Location: Hybrid Poplars grow well in various soils. They grow much better in more fertile soils than in poor soils. Areas of high pH will reduce their growth and may kill them. A soil test is cheap insurance. A pH over 8.0 is dangerous. Hybrid Poplars achieve best growth in deep, fertile, alluvial soils that have adequate moisture with capacity to hold it. Agricultural lands not currently suited or used for cultivated crops, such as in grass for hay or pasture, are fine. Quality cropland also can be used.


Planting instructions: Your planting site should be made of loose, quality soil.
1) Dig your hole two times the width and depth of the root system of the plant you are working with. This will give the roots plenty of room to grow.
2) Position the tree into the hole and hold it straight.
3) Begin back filling the hole with soil, be sure to completely cover your roots with soil and tamp down so that there are no air pockets underground. If pockets of air come in contact with your roots, they will dry out quickly.
4) Water the planting site to settle the soil and then mulch to retain soil moisture. Mulching also helps to keep an competing growth from invading the planting area.


Watering: Hybrid Poplars should be planted in moist soil and be irrigated properly, especially in the first year of planting, to help the development of a good root system. Sites that maintain good moisture throughout the year are fine to minimize the need for further irrigation beyond year one. They can handle short-term flooding if the water keeps moving and the water table drops below the soil surface before the trees leaf out in the spring. Best would be if the water table is 1.5 to 3 feet below soil surface. For ample and continued growth, soil moisture should be monitored, and Hybrid Poplars should not be stressed.


Fertilization: In fertile soils, including some old pastures, the nitrogen released from organic matter within the soil can be sufficient to carry the trees for several years without the need for added fertilizer. A rate of 50 to 150 lbs of nitrogen per acre per year is the general rate applied if needed. This again can be found out when you take your initial soil test to see if the land is suitable. Treat the Hybrid Poplars as you would a regular crop for best results.


Weed Control: If weeds and grasses are not adequately controlled, they will cause Hybrid Poplars to grow slowly and may kill them. This is especially true in the first year or two of growth. Herbicides can be used before planting and after. Check with your local supplier. They can also be cultivated in areas accessible to eliminate or minimize herbicide use. Depth should be kept to a minimum of 3 to 4 inches to protect root growth. As trees get older and shading occurs, weed growth is less.


Pests and Disease: The best defense is a healthy tree. Hybrid Poplar trees are very hardy. Good soil, proper feeding, and keeping the tree from getting too much water are key to its prosperity. If worms bite holes in the leaves you can sprinkle Seven Dust on them. These little bites do not affect the tree since it is growing at such a fast rate and is putting on so many new leaves.


Pruning: Prune the trees during the dormant season, which is winter, because the leaves have fallen off and you can best see the shape of the tree. In addition, new sprouts have not surfaced, so you are causing less damage than if you prune during the growing season. Look for diseased, dead, or damaged limbs as the tree matures. Make a small cut into them with the pruning shears, and if there is no green flesh inside, remove them. Cut at the point where they meet healthy limbs. Make sure all branches are facing the sky, so they are open to sunlight and air. Prune any Hybrid Poplar branches that are facing down toward the ground.

fast growing n need shade tree
sharon l on Jul 22, 2018
Why I choose Superiour Hybrid Poplar, we want beauty, shade, and fast growing with this symmetrical look. Not the Poplars that grow straight up. We planted 5 and ordered 3 more, however we put these on the West side of our property hoping to acquire the shade we are looking for. Fast-Growing-Trees pricing, shipping and Customer Service is excellent. I will send progress pictures to help others see the growth. Plant w/ confidence, they are very accommodating and want their customers happy!

We recently lost a tree in our back yard that provided shade. I was looking for a fast growing tree which attracted me to this purchase!
Denise S on Jul 18, 2018
need fast growing
Wendy S on Jul 8, 2018
We chose the Superior Hybrid Poplar because the only type of "poplar" tree that we could find locally (San Antonio, TX) is the Cottonless Cottonwood, which is not the type of cottonwood tree we actually want ... and the Superior Hybrid Poplar tree IS the type we want because it is fast growing, gorgeous leaves, awesome shade, and also it's NOT AN OAK (there are bazillions of oak trees everywhere here - and they drop leaves all the time! oh ugh).

I have 3 of them they are 5 years old and 40 ft tall but they look like they are dieing no leafs on them this year why is that?
floyd B on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It was a really rough winter. They might be behind schedule and still in a state of dormancy. If you take a coin or fingernail and gently scratch some of the surface are of the bark what color is underneath?
what is the danger of the tree blowing down on houses if large roots are growing several inches above ground?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Hybrid poplars do have surface roots over time, but they also go down and anchor themselves pretty well, and are not known to be uprooted easily. Any tree can be blown over if the winds are strong enough.
is this a good tree to plant close to house? about 6 feet away? if not, recommend which trees are? Fresno ca 93720
rrerfr r on Jun 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would plant 25 foot away from a structure.
Spacing between three poplar trees ?
A shopper on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We recommend to plant the Hybrid poplar 15-20 feet apart.
What time of year is best for planting a Hybrid Poplar in zone 7 ?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Spring and/or fall are optimal, but any time from sp. to f. will do if you are religious about keeping them hydrated (and maybe shaded from the most severe of the sun) for 3-4 mos. as the roots work their way out of the root ball and into the new soil-in-situ. Having the drip watering donut they sell can help, or a soaker hose.
Are these potted with a root ball or are they they bare root?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine came with the root ball and from what I understand they ship all their trees like that
Is the Superior Hybrid Poplar tree deer proof or at least deer resistant?
Helen G on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is is deer resistant. However if food is sparse deer will eat anything.
can I plant them in the summer ?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but water every other day and maybe shade from noonday sun til roots are established.
is this tree always green?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, for the most part. For a very short time in the spring, when the leaves are small, they have a little pinkish green coloring. If the tree is experiencing a drought condition, some leaves turn yellow. Other than that, it has medium to deeper green leaves. I should add that I feed mine a 10-10-10 fertilizer twice a year.
What type or kind of fertilizer do I use ? /
warren j on Jun 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Hybrid poplars do well with a 10-10-10 or a Miracle Grow fertilizer.
The tail end of my drainage field is near where i'd like to plant these. Will they cause a problem?
Chris H on Aug 13, 2018
Is the root invasive?
A shopper on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I was certain i read that this tree grows strong roots but is not invasive. Mine is 4 years old and is huge, i have not had any problems with roots being invasive or at the surface. I have found this tree does best watered with some sun around, to prevent mold. It grows like crazy the hotter out it is. It is my favorite tree in the yard. Not messy at all. If you are looking for a pretty tree with a nice shape that provides shade fast this is it.
Approximately, with perfect conditions, does this type of tree survive?
Diane E on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I live in northeast. Summer up to 100 degrees. Winter brings blizzards and below zero temps. I have 2 poplar hybrids and they are perfect.
Do they like heat of over 100 degrees?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in Dallas so 100 degrees is not uncommon. The Hybrid Poplar was planted in full sun view. I have not notice any deficiencies. You are good to go planting the Hybrid Poplar.
I’ve heard about a lot of hybrid poplars in some tree farm in Oregon, they have excellent gold fall color like their cousins, the aspens. So they actually have fall color! So is it a good fall color tree?
SoumilGaming G on Jun 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are not known for their fall color. They can change colors like many just before they drop their leaves.
My kids have some allergies. Will these trees give off a lot of pollen?
Tishb90 on Nov 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hybrid Poplars do not produce pollen.
I would like to plant this near a driveway, behind a basketball hoop. How far away should it be planted? I would like to make sure the roots don't ruin the pavement and that the branches don't block the hoop.
Christie J on May 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Keep the tree well back. The Hybrid Poplar grows very fast and will surprise you. I have several in my yard and I keep at least 15 feet separation
What is the lifespan of the hybrid poplar?
Kemo S on Jul 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Hybrid poplar will only reach 30 to 50 years of age.
Does this tree give off any "cotton" or "seeds" like a cottonwood?
Alaina D on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it does not produce Cotton. It is a Hybrid and a cross between an Eastern Cottonwood and a Black Poplar tree.
Does the superior hybrid poplar do well in windy areas?
Diane G on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Having these planted in Texas, they do see plenty of wind and storms. They are pliable and move quite a bit and if anything, they have hardened off better with all the movement, large solid trunks now. We do have (3) 7 foot fence stakes supporting them still just to make sure they dont get the Texas lean (wind comes from south mostly and tree leans to the north)
We are considering purchasing a Superior Hybrid Poplar. What extras, if any, do you recommend?
David V on Aug 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We used the root rocket when planting in full sun (2 years ago). This tree is amazing- purchased 5-6ft tall, now it's well over 12 feet! The trunk was about a half inch thick when received, but now is 3-4 inches in diameter. Very little attention needed other than some minor pruning and lots of water during hot summer days (zone 5). We did tether it this past spring for a few months because of some very strong winds. We've already removed them and the trunk is very strong.
Do they lose their leaves?
JESUS R on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they lose their leaves in the fall.
During the first 12-24 months, how often would you say you need to water this tree to thrive in the high Chihuahuan Desert climate of El Paso, Texas?
LRafinan on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I found my Hybrid Poplars to be very hardy. I planted them on my country land which is heavy clay/ loam and couldn't get to them but every 5-7 days or so. I dug a hole about 2'wide by 3' deep and filled with half soil mixed with a good soil amendment and added vermiculite to help hold the water. I slow released 5 gallons of rain water on the trees every 5-7 days for 4 months through the summer. They grew a lot and very healthy. Hope this helps!
can I still plant this tree in August in NC?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can plant this in August just make sure that is does get enough water.
What kind of animals like to dwell/live in these trees? Birds, rats, squirrels??
Shlanderz on Nov 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought two of these and planted them two years ago. They aren't big enough yet for squirrels and birds but I'm sure those two will borrow branches from time to time when they are full grown. I don't expect any rats to be anywhere near these trees.
How fast do they grow?
Leslie K on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: very fast mine are two years old and about 12 feet also starting to fill out, should be a nice tree.
Is it a dirty tree ( like the helicopters of the maple ) ?
Mark G on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. Nothing drops off except the leaves in the Fall. The leaves in the Fall are very large (like largest maple) and much easier to rake up.
Can it be planted in the pasture where horses and cattle are ?
Liz S on May 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My neighbor has them lining up right on the edge of his pasture, they seem to do fine there. I wouldn't think it would be any different inside a pasture.
How far should you plant from sewer, water lines and foundations?
Mindi Y on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sewer and waterlines shouldn't matter. I would stay at least 15 feet away from the foundation to prevent the roots from getting into the drain pipes. These trees aren't known for that but just to be safe.
Hi All:
I am going to plant Hybrid Poplars on both sides of a driveway. What distance between the tress do you recommend and how far away from the side of the driveway?
carl o on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I put mine in my yard to help shade one side of my house and the air conditioner. They are now two years old and were put in about 22 feet apart. Two are now about 18-20 feet high and around 10 feet across. Depending on whether you want separation between them or want them touching, I would recommend planting between 20 to 30 feet apart. With that, for good tree shape, trim botton every year for good height and strong trunk.
