Trembling Aspen is the fastest growing native tree with a long trunk and a narrow, rounded crown at maturity. The bark is greenish to white. Leaves tremble in the lightest of breezes. They are suitable for poor soil conditions such as conservation sites. It does not do well under polluted conditions and is best in a natural forest setting.
