One-of-a-kind fall color. Can be grown in a wide range of climates (from Zones 1-7) and easily adapts to a wide range of soil types. The fall color is a deep golden maize —against its familiar white bark, the contrast is simply striking. The added feature of the “quaking” round leaves in the autumn wind makes it a favorite landscape tree across the entire top half of the country. An excellent choice for new homeowners as it grows quickly (two or more feet per year) to fill in a sparse yard. A quaking aspen will even tolerate some partial shade.

moving to new house, no trees in hay field which is partly my back yard. I liked the idea of tolerance and fast growing.

they grow well in my area and are beautiful!

My plan is to plant four of these in a row, given adequate spacing, and then plant three Robinson Flowering Crabapple trees in the negative space between the Quaking Aspens. I will offset the row of crabapple trees to allow plenty of room for all of the trees to fully grow, but when viewed broadside I hope to see a wall of gorgeous colors during the Summer and Fall.

Do these aspens have a root system that would impact a septic system?
Davie on Jan 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Willow tree roots will seek water! They are known for wrapping around various buried pipes - sewer and water in particular. Strongly recommend plantin willows along a stream channel of any size - boggy soil will do also. During droughts, plan on watering the tree.
