Is a Quaking Aspen a gymnosperm or angiosperm?

Populus tremuloides (Quaking Aspen) is in the order Salicales of subclass Archichlamydae of class Dicotyledonae in the subdivision Angiospermae. The shape and moment of its leaves make them appear to "tremble" in the slightest breeze. Gymnosperms are generally evergreens with needle leaves.
