Green Giant / Brooks #6 Poplar
Hill Poplar

Green Giant Poplar - also known as Brooks #6 - is a large, prairie hardy tree ideally suited to shelterbelts. Cold tolerance, drought tolerance, and disease resistance make the green giant a perfect fit for anyone looking for a low maintenance tree. This hybrid poplar variety produces no fuzz.

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Hill Poplar has largely been replaced by more desirable hybrid poplar varieties that are more resistant to disease.
