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.

Growing Great!

Not my first tree from FGT, and the experience was just as great as the first time. Trees come well packaged, healthy and at or above the size you ordered. This particular tree was shipped during record-breaking, triple-digit heat, arriving on a 103-degree day. I unpacked it, and it had dropped a few leaves from the heat. I gave it a little water, and got it planted within a day or two. The first picture is shortly after it was planted. The second picture is about a week later. The third picture shows the new growth already shooting out!

Strong healthy trees

The delivery time was excellent and the trees were very healthy. We had 90 mph. Straight-line winds and they stood strong like a trooper. I’m very pleased with these beautiful trees.
