Is this a "messy tree"? Is it a "hard or soft wood" tree? Hybrid poplar shade trees?
Charles on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Charles,
I wouldn't call it messy. It does drop its leaves in winter. I planted on a small slope with decomposed granite soil, basically, and yet it is doing well. It needs good watering until the roots get to the water table. Pretty Fall color. I live at 5300 feet on a mountain in Southern California, temperatures can drop to 20's, but it comes back every Spring. Tolerates our sometimes hot dry summers. Doesn't create a lot of shade yet. i think in a better soil and closer to the water table it would grow faster and create more shade. I have no insight into whether it's a hard or softwood.
how far apart for privacy hedge.
( hybred poplar ) ?
Greg H on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These can be grown closer together, around 6-10 feet apart, for a wind break.

good tree
I have had problems with getting these trees going at an early age, but once they are established tney grow fast and are beautiful. I must admit a lot of my problems have been with deer, late frosts, and Japanese beetles. The best of these ( I have 12 planted along my driveway) are 20 feet tall after 8 years. I recommend an organic fertilizer like A35 from Nitron Industries to get these going.

Good Tree but Deer Like Them
The trees came quickly and in excellent condition. Very happy with the purchase overall, but the deer did chew one of the trees right down to the twig. The other one seems to be doing okay so far.

Fast growing
Extremely fast growing. After planting, this tree will be 20 feet tall in a few short years.
Provides shade for my yard but I shouldn't have planted it so close to the fence. The roots can damage the fence.
