Aspen trees grow best in direct light, not shade, thriving in clonal colonies located high in the mountains.
These radiant trees quake in the wind; a lovely and peaceful sound. In the autumn, their soft white bark provides a striking contrast as the leaves turn varying bright shades of peach, yellow, gold, and light green. In full peak their beauty is breath taking – one of the true wonders of nature.
One rain storm or snow flurry can strip the radiant trees clean of leaf, speedily turning autumn to winter.
