    Silvics of North America book is an excellent shade tree for parks and gardens and gets its common name for the color and shape of unique fruit that resembles a cucumber. As a result, some aspen groves close to cattle or other grazing animals, such as deer or elk, have very few young trees and can be invaded by coniferswhich are not typically browsed. Fall colors are usually bright tones of yellow; in some areas, red blushes may be occasionally seen. Trembling aspen at sunset in Langley, British Columbia, December Ecology[ edit ] Individual clonal colonies can be discerned during the autumn, as seen on this mountainside in the Matanuska Valley in Alaska. Even if pollinated, the small seeds three million per pound are only viable a short time as they lack a stored food source or a protective coating. Often, the wood of a downed paper birch will rot away leaving the hollow bark intact.

    In other instances, entire groves have died. A number of cultivars have very attractive bark and selected for garden planting, including 'Heritage' and 'Dura Heat. As all trees in a given clonal colony are considered part of the same organism, one clonal colony, named Pandois considered the heaviest [8] and oldest [1] living organism at six million kilograms and perhaps 80, years old. In the east, stands decay faster, sometimes 60 years or less depending on the region.

    This easily recognized and peeling birch bark is a winter staple food for moose even though the nutritional quality is poor. Fall colors are usually bright tones of yellow; in some areas, red blushes may be occasionally seen. It is light in weight and is used for furniture, boxes and crates, core stock in plywood, and wall panels. The specific epithet, tremuloides, evokes this trembling behavior and can be literally translated as "like Populus tremula ", the European trembling aspen. Still, the bark is important to wintering moose because of its sheer abundance.
