Weight ranges from 23lbs to 33lbs per cu .ft.
|OTHER NAMES||Robusta, Finnish Aspen, Swedish Aspen, French Aspen, Cucumber|
|MECHANICAL PROPERTIES||Very low stiffness and resistance to shock loads. Low bending strength and medium crush strength. Poor steam bending characteristics.|
|WORKING PROPERTIES||Slight blunting effect on cutters. Very sharp, thin cutters are required to overcome the woolly texture and produce a good finish. Nailing and screwing are satisfactory. Takes stain poorly, usually produces blotchy results. Takes paint, varnish and polish satisfactorily.|
|DURABILITY||Poplar is perishable and susceptible to insect attack. Heartwood is moderately resistant to preservative treatment. Sapwood is permeable.|
|SEASONING||Dries rapidly, but knots are inclined to split. Medium movement.|
|USES||Due to tough, woolly, non-splintering nature, it is suitable for rough usage such as the bottoms of wagons and carts. Also used in furniture framing, drawers, toys, flooring, boxes and crates, veneers and plywood.|
|COMMENTS||Several subspecies: P. Nigra, P. Canadensis, P. robusta, P. Tremula|
