Product Description

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.

Plant today and you'll have silver-green leaves and unusual branches swaying in the breeze in no time. Lombardy Poplar Trees are not evergreens, but they continue to provide great wind blockage and privacy throughout the year. Order a few (or more) of your own today!

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 out of 3

We purchased three Lombardy trees last month. They arrived quickly and we planted them the next day along a fence, each one 7 feet apart. One of the trees had some brown leaves, I figured from shipment, so I trimmed those first thing. A couple of days later that same tree had all brown leaves so we tried replanting somewhere different to save it but it was too late. By week two it was dead. The other 2 trees are doing well though, they’ve already grown quite a bit!

Lombardy Poplar

Very good, I like the system where the tree is grown in burlap bag so when you plant the tree it has a good root system . Would like to plant the larger trees but they are too costly !
