Fast-Growing Privacy Wind Break

Why Lombardy Poplar Trees?

Block the wind, lower your heating bills, and enjoy your yard throughout the summer and winter, all at the same time. With the Lombardy Poplar, it's possible - simply plant one every 5 to 8 feet, and you'll have a dense barrier that can reach amazing heights quickly.

Nothing stops the wind faster. Lombardy Poplars commonly grow 6 feet per year, with some reaching growth rates of 9 to 12 feet. You often see Lombardys planted around farm fields to keep topsoil from blowing away - and they'll work just as effectively for your home.

Plus, their Mediterranean look adds value to your property. These plush Poplars grow in an elegant, columnar fashion. Use them to line your driveway, the road or the edges of your property. Line your Northern borders for a full, voluminous look that's enviable.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: These full sun lovers (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) are very drought tolerant and can be shaped into elegant columnar fashions becoming solid walls that take up little space in your yard. Although not evergreen, they provide great wind blockage and privacy all year.

When you're ready to plant, dig your hole two times the width and the same depth of the root system of the plant you're working with. This will give the roots plenty of room. Hold the tree straight and begin back filling the hole tamping down as you go to eliminate any air pockets from forming. When the hole has been completely backfilled, water the planting site to help settle the soil. Mulch around the base of the tree to prevent competing weeds/grasses from growing and to conserve water moisture in the soil.

FGT Tip: If you are experiencing extreme temperatures or a severe drought, it’s suggested that you place your tree in the shade, or plant it in a well-shaded area in your lawn.

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 ensure you water your Lombardy about once or twice weekly.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize conservatively. Organic fertilizer high in nitrogen works well. You can use a 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer formula. Avoid fertilizing the tree directly. Instead, broadcast the fertilizer around the drip line.

Lombardy Poplars

My initial purchase was disappointing but FGT is an amazing company. 4 of my 5 trees were broken in transit but I emailed pictures to customer service and they immediately sent 4 new trees. They all arrived in perfect health and about 6 ft tall. That was the first of April and they have already grown a foot and the leaves are filling in nicely. North Louisiana zone 8.

Lombardy poplar trees

First shipment tree top broke, they quickly replaced it. I see the are getting new leaves. Hoping they grow fast to fill in a spot I needed for privacy. I love fast growing trees. Wish I could afford more. I would purchase more to fill up 2-3 acres with my dream forest.

Our experience has been great. We got two Lumbardy popular trees to see how they would do in SC weather. We have had them about 8 years now I think and they are doing wonderful. We plan to order more.
