Can anyone tell me what these are. They grow thick around my yard. I was hoping it was a form of Aspen but I’m not sure. Thank you. The bark is smooth gray with a hint of green and has a residue on it the wipes onto your hand

Cottonwood and aspen are in the same genus. Very closely related. In cottonwood, the base of the leaf is flattened. Cottonwood leaves are at least twice as large as the leaves of aspen.
