They are gorgeous! That's definitely one tree I'd plant if I could plant any more trees in our yard :)

RE: Pretty Aspens

in this setting stunning...

for the yard .. i dont think so.. unless you have about 10 acres ...

cant tell from the pic.. but if there was a big blank space in the middle ... thats where grandpa once was.. and these are either all suckers... or seedlings ... one might call it self-groving ... though i bet there is a better word for such ....

great pic.. thanks for taking the time to post it ..

I have got quite a lot of aspen trees on my land, but I do have those 10 acres so there is a lot of space. They are making only light shadow so they are good for growing bushes under. And as the pic is showing, the fall color is spectacular

Yes, the aspens out west are able to live somewhat longer lives than say, my state, due to the relative absence of fungal canker-forming pathogens in the drier air. But they're a beautiful site everywhere they occur.

Hug, you are mimicking nature by underplanting a stand of aspen. Here in the Lakes States, it is completely commonplace to see young spruce, pine and fir coming up under a mature stand of any one of our three main species. A natural nursery.

And sooner or later the conifers will outgrow the aspens and shade them to death. The way of nature, but I normally cut away such threathening undergrowth since I like aspens more.
