Hill Poplar
Armstrong Maple

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Hill Poplar has largely been replaced by more desirable hybrid poplar varieties that are more resistant to disease.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 Armstrong Maple has a narrow, upright columnar growth habit. This stunning tree has showy leaves that range from yellow, orange to red in the fall. It is an attractive hybrid of the Red Maple and Silver Maple. It prefers acidic soils and will have some tolerance for drought once mature.

Edward Murray named the Armstrong Maple in 1969 in honor of Oliver M. Freeman of the National Arboretum, who made the first controlled cross between the two species in 1933.
