Quaking Aspen : Populus tremuloides
This dramatic species occurs primarily on the eastside of our region, so it can tolerate sunny to part-shade conditions.
Cream-colored to light green bark, spine-tingling noises when summer breezes shake the leaves. Dramatic fall colors.
Grows relatively quickly and often forms clones off of its roots (avoid planting near infrastructure).
