Planting under poplars ?
I'm not sure whether this is the right place - but here goes ! At the back of our small field we have an area of approx. 40' x 20' that has 6 poplar trees growing (there are more poplars running along the boundary a few feet behind this. Previous owners had planted Christmas Tree saplings under these 6 poplars, but these had rapidly got far too tall and we have now grubbed out the last few. We would like to replant something under the poplars to make a bit of a screen/windbreak amongst the poplar trunks, but wouldn't want anything taller than around 4/5 feet tall and must be capable of growing under these trees. It's a fairly windy location in good light apart from the poplars. The area will be left to grow fairly wild as at one side we have a massive wood pile left for animals/insects etc. Any suggestions ?? Thank you
