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
January 1, 2013
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!

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.

Great tree
My aspen arrived in great condition. Full of green leaves and packaged very well. Planted it and thus far it is still nice and green. Take enough that I have to stake it and then put chicken wire around it to keep deer and rabbits from chewing on it. Can't wait for it to get taller. It is about 7 foot now. May have to consider another one once I know this has survived my planting it.

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.

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.

This is not the best match for our region, but others have grown successfully in our area and we love how the leaves shimmer in the breeze. Fingers crossed that will have success.

Won't a quaking aspen start sending up shoots all over my yard? Is there any way to enjoy an aspen w/o getting shoots?
brandon on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Fast Growing Trees has sterile Quaking Aspen Trees. They don't produce shoots or tuns of baby trees.
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!

I had a tree dug out and had the stump ground out.What should I do about the stump chips? Do I dig them all out and put fresh dirt in place of it?
Margaret T on Jul 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, dig them all out and put the chips around another plant/shrub for fertilizer/mulch and put dirt into the old stump hole. This will allow you to plant something else in that spot.
