Description

Aspen (populus tremula)

A British native tree also known as quaking aspen, it is a beautiful tree with shimmering foliage. Mature trees grow to 25m. Older trees may be covered with lichen, which gives the trunk a black appearance, and the bark is grey and often pitted with diamond-shaped pores, called lenticels.

The young leaves are coppery coloured before becoming green, then turn a vibrant yellow or occasionally red before falling in autumn.
Aspen is also noted for supporting a wide range of different butterfly and moth larvae.
 
Aspen can be planted as stand alone trees or hedging.
