Balsam Poplar
Sundancer 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.

Sundancer Poplar is a new, fast-growing, disease-resistant, and columnar variety of poplar tree developed at the Agroforestry Center in Indian Head, SK.

It is adaptable in many soil conditions and seems to do well across the prairies with extra popularity further north, in part due to how hardy it is.

Ideal for lining properties, roads, etc. to give an attractive visual hedge.
