Populus robusta

A row of Poplars

A large vigorous male tree forming an open crown with a straight bole to summit. Young leaves are an attractive coppery red. A hybrid between Populus angulata and Populus Nigra raised near Methz, France in 1895.

It is a very effective tree in providing fast growing shelter and screening for farm buildings and unsightly views but it should not be planted close to structures as its vigorous invasive roots which grow close to the surface can cause serious structural damage.

It has very luxuriant heavy foliage of broad ovate deep glossy green leaves. It is a superb specimen by a lake or river and a very attractive balsamatic scent is emitted from the leaves as its opens in spring. It grows best in deep heavy soils.
