The aspen tree is a poplar (in Swedish a "poppel") tree (Wikipedia link in English, Wikipedia link in Swedish).

The English Wiki-link tells us more about the mythological stories surrounding the characteristic shivering leaves of the aspen tree. Rather amusing. The Swedish Wiki-link sticks to the strictly scientific explanation, as we would.

The things you learn when off on a tangent of a tangent of something on the internet. :-D

Another not wasted day in other words (a day when you learn something, is a day not wasted). ;-)
