Populus tremula - Native Aspen (Scottish)
Populus tremula - Aspen is a beautiful large fast growing tree which is native to the UK and the cooler regions of the northern hemisphere. It is characterised with its trembling and shimmering foliage.
Deciduous. Aspen is a very useful tree species which helps to stabilise soils, mitigate pollution plus it has a high ecological value for numerous insects and fungi. Aspen is a valuable and well regarded timber crop in Scandinavia for firewood, plywood manufacture and paper production.
We grow aspen from 2 different sources; a UK seed source and also a specific Scottish clonal collection. The latter option is more expensive than the generic UK source due to significantly higher propagation costs but it enables us to offer a reliable supply of plants from a Scottish origin.
