Hybrid Poplar Robusta


This extremely vigorous hybrid poplar is mainly used for biomass fuel or screening purposes. It has a very straight trunk with an upright leading branch and a narrow canopy. The young leaves in spring have an attractive red-brown colouring. This variety is all male, so they will not make any seeds. You can propagate them from cuttings very easily.
You can also buy the hybrid poplar Gaver.

Poplars are classic shelterbelt trees because they grow so fast and tend to produce suckering stems from their roots, especially if they are pruned at all or grazed by animals.

Growing Hybrid Poplar Setts
Any moist soil is fine, including on the coast, but dry sites are not suitable. Simply push the sett into the earth so that it is half buried, with the coloured end on top. They will root quickly and within a couple of years, they will grow 2-3 metres per year.
Your trees will reach about 30 metres tall.

Robusta is one of the Populus x euramericana group of hybrids, which are crossed from American Cottonwoods and European Black Poplars. This strain was first bred in France in 1895 from the 'Cordata' Cottonwood and the 'Plantierensis' Black Poplar and is usually refereed to as Populus x canadensis.
