Balsam Poplar vs Okanese Poplar

Populus balsamifera

Populus x Okanese

Balsam Poplar
Okanese Poplar

Balsam Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing deciduous tree.

Native to Canada east of the Rockies, this large, upright's seedlings are grown from cuttings.

Sometimes they are a male clone, so they don't produce fluff. Other times, the collection was from both male and female trees and there is some fluff produced.

Okanese Poplar is an excellent shelterbelt tree. It's one of the hardiest and fastest growing trees you can plant on the prairies. This hybrid poplar is disease resistant, drought and cold tolerant, produces no fuzz, and requires little maintenance. Okanese poplar also makes for a good privacy screen on larger properties.
