Poplar

Poplars are trees of the genus Populus of the family Salicaceae.

The populus genus includes 35 species from the temperate and cold regions of the northern hemisphere. It also includes many natural or man-made hybrids. Poplars, fast-growing trees, are rarely found in dense forests but rather in riparian forests and in the vicinity of wetlands. They grow on wet or temporarily flooded land. Some species (aspen) can grow on poor-quality, sandy soils and can tolerate sea spray quite well, although are found some distance away from the sea.

The planting method is very different from that usually chosen for other species such as oak or Douglas fir; they are planted with shovels or pickaxes, as well as with root plants.

Poplar, on the other hand, is planted from planks: 3 to 4 m long branches are used as cuttings, which are planted at the crowbar. The planter makes a hole.
