Okanese Poplar
Prairie Sky Poplar

Okanese Poplar is an excellent shelterbelt tree. It's one of the hardiest and fastest growing trees you can plant on the prairies. This hybrid poplar is disease resistant, drought and cold tolerant, produces no fuzz, and requires little maintenance. Okanese poplar also makes for a good privacy screen on larger properties.

Prairie Sky Poplar is a fast-growing columnar hybrid poplar 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.
