Physical Characteristics

White Poplar (Populous alba) is a light, soft hardwood with sapwood that is white or light green cast. The color is lighter and more uniform than that of native American Southern “Yellow Poplar” (also known as Tulipwood). It is generally free of dark mineral streaks that are found in the southern species making it a stain grade Poplar.

Our White Poplar lumber is harvested from prime timberland in northern Appalachian region of Pennsylvania near our manufacturing facilities. White Poplar hardwood machines easily and takes paints and stains well. It is relatively inexpensive and often used in furniture, mouldings and millwork, paneling, panels, carvings, crates and picture frames.
