Truely Missed
Reviewed By: Ruben (LaFayette, Kentucky)
Looked forward to getting these trees to see what they'd do for my backyard. Got them in the peak of planting season and put them in the ground as not much more than sticks. Once in the grouns and watered they took off like a rocket. The first year they grew 10 feet and sprouted three new limbs. I would recommend these trees to anyone in the central region of the USA. To bad I will not be able to see these trees reach full potential. I had to relocate to Texas and probably won't make it back to Kentucky anytime soon.

Not yet impressed
Reviewed By: Anonymous (Halstad, Minnesota)
I ordered 20 of these hybrid poplars about a year ago. They came at about 4 feet tall as just sticks/trunks (and it looked like the trunks had all been cut at the top to be that height), with no branches or leaves. 16 of the poplars did produce leaves, but did not grow vertically at all. The other 4 must have just had mostly dead trunks, because they only produced a few leaves at the base of the trunks at ground level. If you live where there are deer, make sure they are fenced and deer netted in, because the deer will devour them quickly to about ground level. We had all of ours fenced, but ran out of netting, so 5 of them didn't get the net. The deer somehow managed to eat those 5 down to almost ground level even with fences around them, deer repellant, and the scent of our big dogs. Hopefully we'll see some vertical growth and branches this year on the trees that didn't get damaged, and started out healthy looking. If we do, then I will increase my rating, but definitely don't look for anything spectacular or more than leaves, the first year.

Who's laughing now
Reviewed By: L (Monticello, WI)
I purchased these trees a year ago for our new house in the country. Wasn't sure where I was going to plant them so I gave them a temporary home before running out the door on vacation. My family didn't think it was necessary to plant these sticks because really, what were they going to grow into. This spring they received their permanent location and what a surprise they are to my family when we look at them and I'm laughing now because of how well they've grown in the first year.... Glad I took the advice of the gentleman at the hardware store to purchase Hybrid Poplar for a fast growing tree for a lot with no shade.

Poplars
Reviewed By: Doreen Redmer Goff (Buhl, ID)
I bought poplars for the fast and tall block and privacy need. they were great until this last two years. They have been dropping cotton like seeds all over my place that get tracked into my house and fill my porch and patio so I cant sit in my patio or walk in the walk way without draging them in the house. what a mess. There a great fast growing tree and provide great wind block for my house, but what a mess while there seeding....When the wind blows there every where. I wish I new this before I planted then so close to the house. I spend more time cleaning up after them to keep them from being track into the house and garage....There has to be some thing I could of planted thats not so messy?

Fastest growing trees ever!
Reviewed By: Cori (Longmeadow, MA)
I bought (5) of these trees Three years ago. They arrived as single sticks. Three had accidents with my husbands lawnmower and didn't survive. I have Two remaining that are about two stories high, and 6 feet across and the bottom trunks are atleast 6 inches across in diameter. People who saw me plant these things three years, and laughed, are completely SHOCKED to see how big they are, and in such a short time. I actually just got online to order some more.
