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.

2 1/2 trees

We were quite excited to plant the three Lombardy Poplars that my mom had been dreaming of. Unfortunately the first one snapped in half as she placed it in the ground. We've left the remaining part in the ground and hopefully it grows. It was quite a disappointing accident but the other two were strong and sturdy.



We have reached out privately to help with a replacement for the broken tree. We're so sorry that this happened!

Lombardy Poplar

Everything was great from order to delivery to how the trees were packaged and the size of the tree. It was rather expensive, but I could not find these trees anywhere else.

If you live in a desert region, and the soil is clay based, this tree will survive and thrive.

Very good experience. We purchased 10 trees. All look great, still have their leaves except one. Looking forward to watching them grow.

Lombardy poplar is awaome!

The tree arrived in a Gargantua’s box. I also love the fact that it rises over the fence and people in our neighborhood can see it in all its glory, I also love the fact that it’s super cool looking in my garden it really stands out!
