These poplar trees are plentiful around the cabin lot on the south side of Sylvan Lake, Alberta. These first two photos show what we believe to be a white poplar. Also plentiful are another poplar known as the Russian Poplar, which has a darker, rougher bark. I will need to do more research in to the differences and characteristics of these trees, as at this point identification of these two types of trees has been done by word of mouth and local knowledge.
