Is now a good time of year to plant aspen trees? What is a optimal site? Is there a free/cheap source of Aspen saplings? We are a K-8 Charter school called Aspen Academy. I thought it would be great to plant a school aspen grove. phone contacts are school 952-226-5940

Here is a link to the Arbor Day Foundation. Please read the information on aspen and their preferred growing sites and conditions. Then, if you log in, they state they may have bare root trees available. You may be able to get them at a very reasonable price (if not free) as they are for a school. https://www.arborday.org/trees/treeGuide/TreeDetail.cfm?ItemID=780
