Bred by Jeffries Nurseries, the Skyfest is a fast growing, tall cottonwood with excellent disease resistance and adaptability to many kinds of soil. In the fall, its leaves turn a golden yellow.

This species has an aggressive root system, making it unsuitable for planting close to buildings but very drought resistant and an excellent choice for shelterbelts.

Prairie Skyrise Aspen has a compact and columnar branching structure that makes it a great privacy screen for small yards. You'll notice that the old and new growth have contrasting colors of green, giving this tree an attractive and unique appearance.

Prairie Skyrise Aspen is more disease resistant, columnar, and typically leafs out earlier than Swedish Aspen.
