The Tree Story
Black Poplar (Clear Insight) – Populus nigra (subspecies betulifolia)
This tree is a very old cultivar developed for planting on the borders of fields as a defense against high winds and to demarcate boundaries. It is a fast grower but it breaks easily and is drought resistant. Its branches reach skyward from the central trunk. This prolific yet fragile tree can be seen all over the Greek countryside.
