View of a avenue lined with Polar trees, in Anantnag in Jammu & Kashmir, from the 'Album of Indian Views' taken by Samuel Bourne in 1864. Poplars, which grow in a wide variety of conditions and climates, are fast-growing and hold their shape well. They are often planted along the roadside, riverside or canals as they are good boundary markers and make great wind shields.
