Aspen; Populus tremuloides is a deciduous tree native to cooler areas of North America, one of several species referred to by the common name aspen. It is commonly called quaking aspen,[1][2][3] trembling aspen,[1][2] American aspen,[2] Quakies,[1] mountain or golden aspen,[4] trembling poplar,[4] white poplar,[4] popple,[4] as well as others.[4] The trees have tall trunks, up to 25 meters (82 feet) tall, with smooth pale bark, scarred with black. The glossy green leaves, dull beneath, become golden to yellow, rarely red, in autumn. The species often propagates through its roots to form large clonal groves originating from a shared root system. These roots are not rhizomes, as new growth develops from adventitious buds on the parent root system (the ortet).
