Populus nigra (Black Poplar) - Plant
The Black Poplar a native of Europe and Western Asia is rarely found these days. The black poplar is a medium to large-sized deciduous tree, reaching 20?30 m, and rarely 40 m tall. Normally their trunks achieve up to 1.5 m in diameter ? however, some unusual individual trees in France have grown old enough to have much larger trunks ? more than 3 meters DBH. Their leaves are diamond-shaped to triangular, 5?8 cm long and 6?8 cm broad, green on both surfaces.
