Okanese Poplar
Silver Leaf Willow

Okanese Poplar is an excellent shelterbelt tree. It's one of the hardiest and fastest growing trees you can plant on the prairies. This hybrid poplar is disease resistant, drought and cold tolerant, produces no fuzz, and requires little maintenance. Okanese poplar also makes for a good privacy screen on larger properties.

Native to North America, Silver Leaf Willow has orangish bark and long, silvery grey leaves. Bees and other insects are attracted to its flowers.

Popular as an ornamental tree for parks, it is also used as a shelterbelt species. It may not be as cold hardy as some of the other willow varieties, however.
