Fast-Growing, Cold Hardy Tree
Why Quaking Aspen Trees?
Known for climate and soil adaptability, with gains of up to 5 feet per year, the Quaking Aspen Tree makes a statement. Especially since it boasts gorgeous fall color you'll love. And the Quaking Aspen is well-known for thriving in cold climates and poor soil.
Your new tree will give you bright yellow leaves in the fall - stunning against its white bark. An amazing tree in every sense, the Quaking Aspen gets its name from its shimmering heart-shaped leaves...as well as its characteristic tremble or quake when a light breeze passes through the tree.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: If you are experiencing extreme heat, place your potted tree in a well-shaded area, such as a garage, or plant it in a well-shaded area in your lawn.
When you're ready to plant, select a full sun location receiving 6+ hours of direct sun. The Quaking Aspen is quite adaptable to many soil types but require well-draining soil. Dig your hole two times the width and depth of the root system of the plant your are working with. Hold the tree straight as you begin back filling the hole with your gardening/native soil mixture. Once the hole has been completely filled, water the area to settle the soil and then mulch to help keep weeds and grass.
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 take great care of your tree. Generally, watering once weekly should be fine.
3. Fertilizing: Use 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer formula. Avoid fertilizing the tree directly. Instead, fertilize the tree’s soil.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Quaking Aspen
I should have ordered from Fastgrowingtrees.com right from the beginning. A+ company.
I am absolutely thrilled with the product and service we received from Fastgrowingtrees.com. I recommend them 1,000%. In early May I decided to purchase a quaking aspen as a mother's day gift. Trying to decide between two online companies, sadly I ordered from another company and had to pry information out of them as there was a total lack of communication, excuses for non-delivery, and finally I cancelled my order three weeks later after paying a restock fee!! I did not go with my "gut" instinct initially so I then did so and ordered immediately from Fastgrowingtrees.com. The tree arrived very quickly, was in outstanding shape and was packed expertly/carefully; I could not have asked for more. I will definitely order from them again.
So far so good
It was a long process, but they contacted me and alerted me about when to expect the tree and offered a refund if I wan't happy with the amount of time. I just put it in the ground so hopefully we will see some leaves in the spring.
I was so surprised to see a very tall, stately tree securely seated in it’s growing pot. I was so happy for my Birthday Tree!
I have 18 of them.
