Hi,

It's tough to say, the Aspen is a Populus like Poplar, and Cottonwood. Some of them require very different care, do you know the type? or the Latin name? I would put it in good soil with some of the original native soil mixed in, water it, maybe a light fertilizer in the summer and let it grow out for the year. That will give you time to gather info on it's needs and figure out how your going to create your masterpiece!
