“He is so alone in this world”
The heady aroma of a resinous scent is in the air in early spring, when the black field begins to bloom. The tall, powerful, straight trunk reaches a height of over 35 m. In diameter, it grows to almost two meters. Its dense crown resembles a candle or a pyramid. When the trees are planted in a row, it seems as if they are “shaking their heads quietly, like judges, whispering among themselves.” This is what a black poplar looks like on the vast expanses of the European continent..
At the same time its:
- the cracking bark becomes dark gray and can be up to 6 cm thick, but closer to the crown it becomes lighter and thinner;
- successive green leaves with a finely serrated edge have a rhombic or round-triangular shape and grow up to 8 cm;
- the kidney has a multi-cover structure with free scales;
- small flowers are collected in rich earrings, reaching 10-12 cm in length.

In folk medicine, all parts of the plant are used: bark, leaves and buds. To preserve all the medicinal properties of black poplar, the collection of medicinal raw materials is carried out during the flowering period.

Mix or turn the contents several times a day to dry evenly.
Raw materials are packed in fabric or paper bags, which are tightly tied / closed. All this is stored in a dry and dark place with good ventilation.
