  • Appearance: Quaking aspen is a medium-sized tree that typically reaches heights of 20 to 80 feet (6 to 24 meters). It has a slender trunk with smooth, pale green to white bark that is marked with black horizontal scars. The leaves are nearly round and have finely serrated margins. One of the most distinctive features of quaking aspen is its flat petiole, which causes the leaves to flutter or "quake" in the slightest breeze.

  • Habitat: This tree species is highly adaptable and is found in a wide range of habitats, including mixed forests, meadows, and disturbed areas. It is often one of the first trees to colonize open spaces after disturbances like wildfires.

  • Clonal Growth: Quaking aspen is well-known for its ability to reproduce through clonal growth. Most aspen groves are actually composed of genetically identical trees connected by a shared root system. These clonal groves, known as clones, can be vast and long-lived.

  • Fall Color: In the fall, the leaves of quaking aspen turn brilliant shades of yellow, orange, or red, creating stunning displays of autumn color.

  • Wildlife Value: The tree provides habitat and food for various wildlife species. Deer and moose browse on the leaves, and the seeds are consumed by birds and small mammals. The quivering leaves also create a distinctive sound that can attract the attention of wildlife.

  • Wood Uses: While quaking aspen is not a primary timber species due to its relatively soft wood, it is used for a variety of products, including pulpwood, particleboard, and paper. Its wood is light and easily worked.

  • Landscaping: Quaking aspen is sometimes used in landscaping for its attractive foliage and fall color. However, its short lifespan and vulnerability to pests like aphids can limit its use in urban and suburban settings.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
