White Oak vs Quebec Poplar

Quercus alba

Populus x P38P38

White Oak
Quebec Poplar

White Oak is large, long-lived tree with an irregular trunk divided into spreading, often horizontal, stout branches. A highly adaptable tree, White Oak features beautiful green leaves that turn red-purple in the fall and green acorns.

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.
