**133/H -Tree Talk-Lombardy POPLAR.

This well known tree needs no description as its tall flame-like shape must be familiar to everybody.  The majority  of  Lombardy poplars in England are male trees, as this kind was the first to be introduced &  the bulk of subsequent planting  has been made by cuttings.  The leaves of  this tree are smaller than those  of the other poplars & are shaped rather than those of the black poplar.
