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.
