I want to ID a tree with flat stems attaching the leaf. But it didn't have white bark like a quaking aspen. Are all trees with flat stems attaching the leaves aspens and then you just determine the type by leaf shape and toothiness and bark color?

Cottonwood and Aspen are Poplars. Check out that wikipedia page I linked above.
