Aspen (botanical name Populus tremula) is an undersized tree that grows up to a maximum height of 15 meters. Although aspen is related to the great black poplar, they are unlike each other. In aspen, the grey hued catkins emerge prior to the leaves. The flowers of other poplars are additionally red hued, while the flowers of grey poplar, which is likely to be a cross between aspen and white poplar have a great resemblance to those of aspen. However, the grey poplar (botanical name Populus canescans) is a comparatively large variety of tree growing up to a height of 30 meters and has lobed leaves. Aspen produces male and female flowers on the same tree.
The male flowers of aspen are grey hued with red anthers and when the flowers mature, they are yellow with pollens. The male flowers are roughly 5 cm to 10 cm in length. On the contrary, the female flowers of aspen are comparatively small and have a green-grey color. The trees release seeds in May and they are transported in white down or feather-like rafts far and wide by the wind, as in the case of other poplars. The bark of aspen is even and has a shiny silvery green color, while the branches are thin. The vivid brown leaf buds appear in winter. The leaf stalks of this tree are flattened and, as a result of this, they shake in the wind. The leaves are even and without any hair or bristle having a smoothed shape, while the margins are scalloping. Leaves of poplars other than aspen either have white color wool underneath (as in P. canescans), or are delicately jagged at the margins (as in P. tremuloides). If you scrutinise the leaves of the tree during summer, it would help you to identify aspen.
Aspen blooms during the period between February and early April.
