Columnar/Swedish Aspen, also known as Populus tremula 'Erecta', is a deciduous tree that is native to Europe and Asia. It is a cultivar of the Trembling Aspen tree and is often grown for its distinctive upright, narrow columnar shape, which makes it a popular choice for landscaping and as a windbreak.

The tree typically grows to a height of 30-40 feet (9-12 meters) and a width of only 10-15 feet (3-4.5 meters), making it an ideal choice for small gardens or urban landscapes. It has a straight trunk and a dense crown of foliage that is narrow and oval-shaped, with pointed tips. The leaves are green, round, and toothed, with a slightly wavy edge. In the fall, the leaves turn a bright yellow, adding to the tree's ornamental appeal.

Columnar/Swedish Aspen is a fast-growing tree that is easy to maintain, and it can tolerate a range of soil conditions, including clay, loam, and sand. It prefers full sun to partial shade and can thrive in zones 2-7. It is also relatively resistant to pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance option for homeowners and landscapers alike.
