Fast-Growing Wind BreakIf you need a quick privacy hedge or windbreak, or need to screen out an unwanted view – sooner rather than later – then you want the Lombardy Poplar (Populus nigra ‘Italica’). This tree shoots skyward to 40 feet, 50 feet or more. And by shooting skyward, we mean that it rockets at a pace of 1 to 6 feet per year! Very few other screening trees will grow this fast.These stately trees have been used in public and private landscapes in Europe since the 1700’s. Andrew Jackson helped popularize them in America in the 1800’s. They were used then to dramatically line roadways or highlight garden edges. Can’t you imagine how they would add height and drama to your yard?In summer, the heart shaped leaves are green on one side and silver on the other, which makes for a shimmering effect in the slightest breeze. In fall the leaves turn a classic shade of autumn yellow.Tall and columnar, they create a memorable impact wherever they are planted, but especially if planted in a row. Planted at 5’ to 8’ apart, they will make a formidable windbreak in no time.Birds love the shelter and high protection the branches of the Lombardy offer, so you will have plenty of songbirds coming to visit.Go for high impact and don’t buy just one.
