Quebec Poplar

Tristis Poplar is a large deciduous tree. It is cold hardy, disease resistant, and relatively drought tolerant. Tristis Poplar loses its leaves later in the year than other Poplars, making it a great ornamental tree in fall.

It's known for its strongly scented balsamic buds and yellow foliage in autumn. Because of its size, Tristis Poplar is most suitable for large properties and will help prevent wind erosion.

Tristis Poplar is slower-growing than many newer hybrids, for a longer useful lifespan. Tristis grows especially well in the southern prairies due to its resistance to cold dry winds.

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.
