Product Description

Classic Shade Grows Up to 8 Feet Per Year

Why Superior Hybrid Poplar Trees?

It's one of the fastest growing and most attractive shade trees you can find. Superior Hybrid Poplar Trees quickly become established and can add thousands to a home's value. Plus, Hybrid Poplars have a pleasing oval shape that complements any property.

Simply plant these Poplars wherever you need fast shade or privacy. They've been known to grow up to 8 feet in a single year. So, 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 sunlight through when it's needed most.

Why is Better

When you receive your trees, they may not look like much...but plant them, stand back and watch the explosive growth take hold. Our Superior Hybrid Poplar Trees are even better because we've planted, grown and shipped them with care. Now, you reap the rewards of tried-and-true growth and a healthier, well-tended root system.

We've done the hard work at the nursery so that you get a better formed, long-lived tree. Order your own Superior Hybrid Poplar Tree today!

Tree arrived with dead leaves

Every tree we've ordered from FGT has arrived with either dead leaves or green leaves that are dying and full of holes and brown veins. We planted all but one, and have been working vigorously to bring the trees back to health so they will survive the winter. I don't know if the trees were in a bad state when they shipped. I suspect the long shipping time (7-9 days) would be harmful to any living tree or plant. We went to a local nursery to find a tree to replace the one tree we didn't accept. We found the quality of their trees to be much higher than those offered by FGT. We were able to get them the same day, and they were not much more expensive than the trees we purchased from FGT. We'll buy trees from a local nursery from now on.


We're so sorry that your trees arrived in less than great condition! A long commute, especially in the summer months will cause stress on plants but they do typically recover within a few weeks. I'm glad we were able to help resolve this issue for you!

Poplar Tree

When we first received the tree it appeared to be dead and lost all of its leaves in 2 days. WE watered it every day until we planted it. To our surprise it bloomed the day after being planted and continues to grow at a rapid pace. So far so good !!!


Fast and hardy

Purchase this tree (6ft verison) 4 yrs ago. It can well packaged and looking like a fishing poke. I planted it as directed hoping for the best. In no time it started sprouting new limbs and growing taller. Hard to believe that it is now almost 40ft tall and providing the much needed shade I wanted and was promised. It is very hardy and has weathered many a windstorm that took down my weeping willow. As and added bonus this year it sprouted a couple of root offshoots that I was able to dig up and transplant to provide added privacy. Good rain and sunshine this tree grows 6+ft /yr even in my ****** clay soil.

Get the larger size

The tree came as advertised. So far, it seems alive with green leafs. If I order again, I’ll order the largest size.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Hybrid Poplars grow well in various soils - simply make sure you're planting in an area with proper sunlight and well-drained soil.

Then, dig your hole two times the width and depth of the root system, position the tree into the hole and hold it straight. Begin back filling the hole with soil and be sure to completely cover your roots with soil, tamping down so that there are no air pockets underground. 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.

2. Watering: Hybrid Poplars should be planted in moist soil and be irrigated properly, especially in the first year of planting. 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. For ample and continued growth, soil moisture should be monitored.

3. Fertilizing: 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. However, a rate of 50 to 150 pounds of nitrogen per acre per year is the general rate applied if needed. 

4. Pruning: Prune the trees during the dormant season, in winter. 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.
