||Also known as cottonwood, poplar, eastern poplar, and southern cottonwood.
||Grows in United States and Canada.
||Fairly straight grained with a uniform texture. Grayish white sapwood that gradually merges into brownish heartwood.
||Light, soft, weak, and low in stiffness, shock resistance and decay resistance.
