Balsam Poplar
no image

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.

Sundancer Poplar is a new, fast-growing, disease-resistant, and columnar variety of poplar tree developed at the Agroforestry Center in Indian Head, SK.

It is adaptable in many soil conditions and seems to do well across the prairies with extra popularity further north, in part due to how hardy it is.

Ideal for lining properties, roads, etc. to give an attractive visual hedge.
