Eastern Cottonwood Tree (Populus deltoides)

Picture of a Eastern Cottonwood tree, (Populus deltoides) species.

Tree leaf identification shows that this plant is a Eastern Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) tree, probably (Populus deltoides ssp. deltoides). However due to its location in Bozeman, Montana, the tree is more likely to be a different subspecies, a Plains Cottonwood (Populus deltoides ssp. monilifera), however this needs verification.

The location of this tree is approximately on the west side of South 11th Ave and W. Garfield St (within the Montana State University grounds), Bozeman, Montana, USA. (45°40'03.67" N 111°03'07.71" W)
