Lightning Poplar Hybrid is a fast growing tree for windbreaks and screening. This Hybrid Poplar is more narrow than some but still can be used as a quick growing shade tree. The leaves of the Lightning Poplar Hybrid last late into fall, providing good screening capabilities.
For privacy screens and windbreaks, plant these fast growing hybrid poplars 3 feet apart if you want them to fill in quickly. At this close spacing the Lightning Hybrid Poplar will have the desired density, too.
