Big-tooth aspen has leaves like that??
« on: July 12, 2019, 10:31:59 AM »
So there are massive big-tooth aspen (?) trees down the street from me (in New Hampshire) with the standard big-tooth aspen leaves, but as I was gazing up at it lovingly, I noticed these weird-looking leaves way up there growing out of the side of a trunk way high up. 

I also found similar leaves growing from an apparent stump sprout on the ground with that same shape, and they're very fuzzy/wooly on the underside. What's up with the funky leaf shape? Is this normal for BT aspen?

Those get confused easily with Aspen, or Bigtooth Aspen, or Birch, I have even had to convince people that they are not Silver Maple.
The leaf shape and color is why people call it Silver Maple. 

White Poplar, populus alba, or Silver Poplar is correct.

The picture of the cluster you have there means there was probably a single tree at one time that was cut down.
Those things are hard to kill, and are very prolific with the suckers. 

Non-Native European and very invasive.
