High desert deciduous tree

These are growing across the street from my house and I would like to plant some. The owners don't know what they are. The location is Goldfield, Nevada and the elevation is 5,600 feet. It gets down to zero F some winters (Zone 7A).
Thanks for any insight.

It is classed as an "exotic" in the VA Tech ID app. I wouldn't really call it an invasive. Most of the Populus tend to root sprout as a normal growing pattern. Quaking Aspen is prime example. Many Aspen groves are single clonals.
