Aspen


There is a Swedish expression “darra som ett asplöv” “tremble like an asp leaf”. It describes the aspen tree (Populus tremula) in an elegant way. The leafs from this fast growing tree easily trembles even in low wind speeds. The rustling sound has made me look out the window many times thinking it’s raining. It spreads with root sprouts up to forty meters from the parent tree, creating clones. The tree also spreads through pollination.
