love the tree
Lindsay B on Jun 17, 2016
Need tall, fast growing screening trees to provide protection to the back of my small property from light and noise pollution caused by unnecessary urban development. Understand and acknowledge the drawbacks, but am a diligent gardener, and the trees will pose no threat to sidewalks or pipes. Love the fall color and the shape from seeing them in the Hondo Valley of new Mexico when I was growing up.

Fast growing, doesnt take up a lot of space around it, lets in some sunlight. I bought and planted one years ago, it has grown tall. It is a good match for our densly built urban neighborhood.

Could I plant Lombardy Poplars as close as 8 ft to my house foundation or will the roots become a problem? I noticed there was a warning about planting hybrid poplars near a structure, but not the Lombardy.
John L on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello John, I have planted as close as eight feet, with no problem
EXCEPT? If your trees get as tall (40') like mine and they die? (some did as I found out, and only 20 years young!! I had to remove them from right at my gutter and I was lucky! You might not want them that close. Put them in a place that you can get to them, Ladder limbing ETC! Every couple of years I rent a lift to get up and trim my dead tops, as well as other stuff. Good tree and some of my others are fine,(planted at the same time). So plant close (5') apart so when you have to remove one it doesn't leave such a BIG hole!!! Sorry could not be more helpful, as a wind break like mine I have them three to four feet apart and all is good! Mike
Is this evergreen?
Tom D on Jun 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this is a member of the willow family and drops its bright yellow leaves each fall.
I have planted bare root Lombardies on a drip system in an arid climate. How many gallons a day should I give each tree?
John W on Jun 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Generally, we recommend a gallon of water per week as needed (no precipitation in the forecast) in an average environment. Since you're in an arid climate, I'd imagine you'd need to double this, especially as the trees are new and becoming established, but it depends on your soil type. This is a great question for your local experts, so I highly recommend you ask them, too. I know some folks growing these trees who water theirs with drip irrigation 3 times per week for 15 minutes, but I don't know the specs of the system, so it may not be helpful.
