What is this?
When we moved onto our acreage we found a few of these trees.
They grow extremely fast and don't sucker - my husband tried to remove one but it grew back from the roots the next year and now (3 yrs later) its probably close to 10 feet tall. We have since decided to keep them and try to root cuttings for more. It would be far easier and quick to buy some but I don't want to buy any if I'm not sure what they are!
I think they are a Cottonwood Poplar... what do you think? I can provide more pictures if needed.
