Hill Poplar
no image

Hill Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing tree with a narrow crown. Hill Poplars function well as a privacy screen or windbreak.

This attractive, long-lived shade tree is a great choice for home and commercial consumers alike, as it requires little pruning or maintenance care.

Hill Poplar has largely been replaced by more desirable hybrid poplar varieties that are more resistant to disease.

Prairie Sky Poplar is a fast-growing columnar variety of poplar tree developed at Agriculture and Agri-food Canada's Morden Research Station.

It is adaptable to many soil conditions and seems to do best in primarily the southern-most parts of the prairies.

Good as a shade tree or as a shelterbelt tree, it is often used in buffer zones as a visual screen or hedge.

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