Description: Root suckering is the primary mode of regeneration in the aspens, Populus tremuloides Michx. and P. grandidentata Michx. When stems of these species are cut, numerous suckers originating in the root pericycle are formed on their extensive lateral root systems. During their first season of growth, suckers ordinarily reach a height of 3 to 5 feet. As many as 20,000 suckers per acre may occur after clear-cutting of well-stocked stands of P. grandidentata.
