The quaking aspen is a term for two different aspen species.

  • Populus tremuloides, a native tree in North America.
  • Popullus tremula, the European trembling aspen.

All aspens spread by suckers (root sprouts). They may come to air up to 40 m from the parent tree, and form extensive clonal colonies.
