Impatient and in need of a windbreak, privacy screen or living wall? Then the Lombardy Poplar is definitely for you.
Plant 5-8 feet apart and this columnar-shaped tree will quickly form a dense, green screen. These privacy trees grow up to 6 feet or more per year!

Obtain the look of the Italian countryside with a tall, fast-growing alternative that originates from the Lombardy region of Italy.
The tree looks like a conifer, but is actually in the willow family… that’s why it grows so fast.
The Lombardy Poplar’s vertical branches grow up, rather than out, giving you dense privacy. In the fall, the tree turns a brilliant golden-yellow. The birds love it for shelter in inclement weather and for nesting.
Lombardy Poplar trees are not evergreens, but they continue to provide great wind blockage and privacy throughout the year.
