The Poplars, Populus species, are fast-growing trees that get pretty big, and several of them have a suckering habit, which means they produce a thicket of smaller stems around their base, which is great for wildlife.
They need plenty of sun and love growing in damp soil close to water, but will grow in any soil type.
What size Poplar trees should I buy?
- If you are not in a hurry to get a full sized Poplar tree, we recommend starting with the smaller 6/8cm girth size.
- If you are in a hurry and need instant impact, then go for the 8/10cm girth size.
Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height.
So, a 6/8cm Standard Poplar tree is much bigger than an 60/80cm Poplar sapling tree or hedge plant.
If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product description.
