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.

What is a Standard Size Tree?

Standard trees, unlike their younger versions listed in the Hedging & Saplings section, are graded by their girth in centimetres, not their height.
Trees of the same grade will be roughly in proportion when planted.

We mostly deliver two sizes of standard:

• 6/8cm Girth = Light standards: cheaper & easier to care for.
• 8/10cm Girth = Regular standards: instant impact.

If you are planting a larger project or putting trees on a site where watering is harder, you should use the smaller 6-8cm sizes.

It is always vital to water new trees during their first summer, but smaller trees are better at coping with "low" maintenance. 

What is the difference between Bareroot and Pot Grown Trees? 

Bareroot plants are by far the best value, the easiest to handle & plant because they weigh so little, and offer the most selection. 
They are only delivered during winter and early spring, about November to March, when the plants are dormant, which is the best time of year to plant almost all woody species.

Some plants or larger sizes can only be delivered in pots, and some popular species are sold both bareroot in winter and potted the rest of the year.

There is nothing wrong with Pot Grown plants, but where you have a choice, bareroot is always even better!
