Aspen is a common name for this species, with most classified by botanists in the section Populus. Aspen Trees are one of the more well-known varieties of Shade Tree on the market today - known for their billowy foliage, ability to grow nearly year-round, and distinctive bark, Aspen Trees make a timeless statement.
Once you have your Aspen Tree, the actual planting process is easy. Select an area with well-drained soil, dig a hole large enough to accommodate the tree’s root ball (along with a bit of extra width for mature growth), place your tree and backfill the hole. Finish by watering the surrounding soil and mulching to conserve moisture.
