    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.

    Populus alba is known for sending up many suckers, correct? Is it invasive?

    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.

    Bark can be quite pretty and the sound if rustling poplar leaves is also pretty cool. Keep em if you dig it.
