Poplar (Populus Balsamifera) is a large size tree that originated in North America. Poplar wood has sapwood that is white and heartwood that varies from yellowish brown to olive green in color. Poplar has a straight grain that can be wooly at times, but has a fine, even texture. Poplar wood is relatively light in weight and average density, but low bending, shock resistance and stiffness. Poplar lumber takes stain poorly, but can be painted, varnished and polished with ease. Poplar lumber makes a great choice for rough usages; such as, paneling and siding.
