DescriptionAverage 4-year-height of 199 hybrid poplar clones ranged from 5.1 to 26.0 feet in Pennsylvania and 5.6 to 22.7 feet in Maryland. Several rapid-growing clones grew well at both locations, but height growth was affected by interactions of clones and location. The clones that grew best on both sites averaged 4 to 6 feet of height growth per year.
