A large tree starting off with a spherical crown that later becomes more elongated oval to round. The bark is light grey and remains smooth for a long time; the young twigs are yellowish-brown and somewhat pendulous. The broad ovoid to round leaves are dark green with a lighter underside; the leaf edge is undulating to roughly serrated. In the autumn the leaves turn yellow. The rustling sound made by the leaves in the wind is characteristic. The tree is dioecious. Suitable for landscapes and row planting. P. tremula is valued in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia for its good wood for the matches and paper industries. Little sensitive to rust and leaf spot disease but this can vary from tree to tree. Stands up well to wind.
