Quaking Aspen Trees
Delivery was great, plenty of instructions. Trees are planted & doing well.
Love it. Very happy.
Our 3' Aspen sapplings were healthy, planted immediately and are currently doing very well. We would order from this company again.
Too soon to tell completely
So far it looks nice and healthy. Branches are cool to the touch so transpiration is taking place. Won't know how well it will be until spring when the leaves should start to open.
Deer proofing! Don't even consider Aspens without it if you have deer around.
My 3rd attempt at growing aspen trees has proved successful. My first try was with bare root trees. That didn't work at all. My 2nd attempt was with 4-5' trees that showed up in great shape probably 1gal root balls. As it turns out they are excellent deer food. They loved them! Starting at the top they ate them all the way to the ground like pencil sharpeners. 3rd attempt I found some more mature specimens locally around 10' tall and fenced them in. 3yrs later they've doubled in height. They look great and are worth the effort.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: 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.
When you're ready to plant, select a full sun location receiving 6+ hours of direct sun. The Quaking Aspen is quite adaptable to many soil types but require well-draining soil. Dig your hole two times the width and depth of the root system of the plant your are working with. Hold the tree straight as you begin back filling the hole with your gardening/native soil mixture. Once the hole has been completely filled, water the area to settle the soil and then mulch to help keep weeds and grass.
2. Watering: During the first year, make sure your tree gets water during extended dry spells, particularly in the summer months. Drooping leaves are a sign of both over or under watering, so take great care of your tree. Generally, watering once weekly should be fine.
3. Fertilizing: Use 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer formula. Avoid fertilizing the tree directly. Instead, fertilize the tree’s soil.
