Populus euramericanaxnigra  'Crows Nest'

Populus euramericanaxnigra  'Crows Nest'

Excellent fastigiate cultivar suitable as an alternative to the Lombardy Poplar where a windbreak or large screen is required. Though it is marginally wider in habit and not as tall, it has a neat outline and superior disease resistance, making it attractive for use as a single specimen.
