Also called large-toothed aspen, American aspen, white poplar and more.  Part of the "poplar" genus Populus.

Native to 🇨🇦 Canada and 🇺🇸 USA Midwest and East.

Aspen is well-adapted to 🔥︎ fire — after a fire, it produces new trunks from the its roots or trunk base.  Aspen often grows with jack pine Pinus banksiana  — after a fire, both grow fast and eventually would get shaded out by spruce and fir, until again invigorated by the next cycle of fire.
