Hill Poplar
Peachleaf Willow

Hill Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing tree with a narrow crown. Hill Poplars function well as a privacy screen or windbreak.

This attractive, long-lived shade tree is a great choice for home and commercial consumers alike, as it requires little pruning or maintenance care.

Hill Poplar has largely been replaced by more desirable hybrid poplar varieties that are more resistant to disease.

The Peachleaf Willow is often a multi-stemmed willow that generally grows into a tall shrub. This versatile and useful small tree is often seen in riparian zones and erosion control projects. Wildlife rely on the twigs, foliage and bark for food.

A widely distributed willow species, it's long pointed leaves are dark green on top and pale green underneath. The Peachleaf Willow is the tallest of the native prairie willows reaching 40ft in height.
