Populus tremula ‘Erecta’

Swedish Columnar Aspen

This is a narrowly upright tree that is well adapted to cold climates. The summer leaves are nearly round, glossy green with a whitish underside. The fall color is orange to rusty-red. This is a seedless variety. It can "quake" like Aspen, but not as pronounced. It is not as prone to the wet climate, low elevation disease like Populus tremuloides. Useful in groves, for screening, or for an accent in the landscape.
