SHOT 7/16/11 12:40:51 PM - Aspen tree trunks in a massive grove in Durango, Co. Populus tremuloides is a deciduous tree native to cooler areas of North America. The species is referred to Quaking Aspen, Trembling Aspen, and Quakies, names deriving from its leaves which flutter in the breeze. The tree-like plant has tall trunks, up to 25 metres, with smooth pale to white bark, scarred with black. The glossy green leaves, dull beneath, become golden to yellow in autumn. The species rarely flowers, often propagating through its roots to form large groves. It propagates itself primarily through root sprouts, and extensive clonal colonies are common.
