    Description

    In a nearly optimal cultural environment, Populus 'Tristis #1' grown for 3 years, planted at 9 by 9 inch spacing produced the equivalent of over 4 tons/acre/year of ovendry wood with specific gravity comparable to native aspen wood. Trees planted at wider spacings yielded less.
