Member of the Willow family, Aspens are deciduous. Their leaves are rounded and shine bright green until turning with brilliant hues of yellow orange and red in the fall.
They grow in colonies or groups that share the same root structure. They spread by means of root suckers that extend out from the colony and then form new sprouts.
Mature Aspens stand forty to seventy feet in height with a smooth light colored to white trunk up to about two feet in diameter.
