**133/I-Tree talk-Black POPLAR.

Scan0041
Scan0042 This is a native tree & is widely spread.  The leaves are about three inches broad at the base & taper gradually to a point.  The margins are cut into large f lat teeth.
When they first appear they are a ruddy gold,  but later are a dark green.  In winter the buds are long & pointed & are sticky with resin.  The bark is a dark grey &it  is not clear why the tree is called black, unless it is in contrast to the white poplar.
