Balsam Poplar vs Quebec Poplar

Populus balsamifera

Populus x P38P38

Balsam Poplar
Quebec 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.

A hybrid of Simon's Poplar and Balsam Poplar, Quebec Poplar is a fast-growing deciduous tree. This particular selection was one of the finalists for the Quebec Ministry of Forest's Hybrid Poplar breeding program.

It is useful for quickly establishing a privacy screen or as part of a shelterbelt, and prefers moist soil. Disease resistance is likely high as is cold hardiness.

Quebec is a province with a strong forestry sector and we are excited to be offering this variety.
