Hill Poplar vs Butternut

Populus x Hill

Juglans cinerea

Hill Poplar
Butternut

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Hill Poplar has largely been replaced by more desirable hybrid poplar varieties that are more resistant to disease.

One of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The wood from this attractive species is used in a lot of specialty products.

A self-fertile nut tree that has better yields with cross-pollination. The meat of the Butternut is very mild, sweet, and oily. Often sought after by nut hunters.

Butternut is intolerant of shade and poor draining soil. It can survive zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3. Butternut canker has decimated this species in its native range.
