    Description

    Aspen trees grow along moist stream bottoms as well as on dry ridges and southerly exposures, on talus slopes, and on shallow to deep soils of varied origins. Quaking aspen is one of the few plant species that can grow in all mountain vegetational zones from the alpine to the basal plain (Daubenmire 1943). As a consequence, aspen dominated communities are found intermixed with such divergent vegetation as semiarid shrublands and wet sprucefir forests.
