Balsam Poplar
Assiniboine Poplar

Balsam Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing deciduous tree that is Native to Canada east of the Rockies.

We grow them in two variations. Sometimes they are a male clones, so they don't produce fluff. Other times, we grow them from seed, which will result in fluff. The detailed descriptions (see below) will tell you which is which.

Assiniboine poplar is a tall, fast growing tree that has a shapely oval form and dense foliage. This hybrid poplar is a male clone and produces no fuzz or fluff. Assiniboine poplar can handle tough conditions such as: urban pollution, environmental salt, drought, poor soil, and even some standing water.
