Bigtooth Aspen

Populus grandidentata

Also called Large-Tooth Aspen, this tree is native to eastern North America. Forests dominated by young healthy Bigtooth Aspen do not readily burn and this aspen almost always maintains or expands its range following a fire, due in part to sending up suckers from the surviving extensive root system.
