Hill Poplar
Golden Weeping 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Hill Poplar has largely been replaced by more desirable hybrid poplar varieties that are more resistant to disease.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 Golden Weeping Willow is a cultivar with bright yellow twigs and an attractive weeping shape. It is one of the most popular willows, with high ornamental value.

The Golden Weeping Willow has glossy green foliage during the spring and summer months, then the leaves turn a golden-yellow in the fall. The brown bark is furrowed and the overhanging branches keep their yellow tone, so they also have significant winter interest.
