Sudden Glory Poplar is a fast growing poplar tree, frequently used for quick growing windbreaks. This poplar has an amazingly narrow form, which works great when planted three feet apart. The main use of this poplar cultivar is for a single or double row in a new evergreen windbreak. While the young evergreen trees take over a decade to grow into their use for a windbreak, the Sudden Glory Poplar sprints out and starts adding coverage, to help slow down the wind.
These quick growing poplar trees should max out at 50 or more feet tall, yet being so narrow, they do not shade out your young evergreens when planted close by, thus are a perfect fit.
