Trembling Aspen Species Profile

Trembling aspen – grouped together with balsam poplar – makes up approximately 3 to 4% of British Columbia’s forests. The tree often appears in pure stands and grows in many soil conditions from sea level to 3000 metres. This tree grows up to 25 metres tall and 25 cm in diameter, but has a shorter lifespan than most trees due to its susceptibility to decay.
