Nearly 100 years ago, Kansas decided to make the Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) tree the official state tree. They referred to it as “The Pioneer of the Prairie” at the time and credited the tree with providing those in the state with plenty of timber. They also honored Cottonwood trees, which also go by the names Eastern Cottonwood trees, Necklace Poplar trees, and Eastern Poplar trees, for standing strong despite often being found along wet riverbanks where they were routinely subjected to flooding and erosion. Cold Stream Farm can show you what these deciduous trees are made of when you purchase wholesale Cottonwood trees from us.

Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) trees tend to grow best when they’re placed into moist sandy or silt loams that are well-drained. That should come as no surprise when you consider they’re usually found in nature next to rivers and other bodies of water. They can grow to be almost 200 feet tall in some cases and have trunks that sometimes extend to be more than 9 feet in diameter. They produce very large leaves and flowers and can also release as many as 40 million seeds in a single season. Those seeds will attract rabbits and deer, while the saplings from Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) trees are oftentimes used by beavers to build dams.
