Aspen Seed Collection and Extraction

Aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) seeds can be collected when about one-third of the capsules within a cluster have partially opened but before the cotton begins to well out. For optimum viability, the seeds must be extracted within 1 week of collection. Seeds contained in sealed jars and stored at -20 ̊C remained viable after 2 years.
