Populus balsamifera 

Populus means Tree of the People. This pioneer requires sun to grow well and prepares the ground for other tree species that will eventually shade it out. Glossy leaves emit a clean fragrance into summer nights. Its resinous buds are used in a pain-killing ointment and by bees to make propolis.
