Bigtooth Aspen (Populus grandidentata)

Plainfield, New Hampshire 03781, United States

Created By: Unity College


On this point you will find a group of Bigtooth Apsen trees. This tree species is capable of growing in a wide variety of enviornments, but in general prefer more sandy soil than not. This particular grouping is alongside a roadway near a streambank. Bigtooth Aspen have unique bark that is brown and heavily furrowed at the bottom and becomes smoother and white at the top of the tree. I encorperated this species into the tour because I really love finding large, oldgrowth Bigtooth Aspens becuase I always tend to mistake their bark for a large Northern Red Oak until I look up.
