About Poplar

Poplar lumber is a substantial species, growing to heights of 130 feet to 160 feet tall with a trunk diameter of 6 feet to 8 feet. Contrastly to its imposing size, poplar lumber has a very low density. Poplar is a hardwood, albeit a soft one with a Janka Hardness rating of 540 lbf. Poplar wood color features a light cream to yellow-brown heartwood and pale yellow to white sapwood along with a straight, uniform grain.

Physical Characteristics

White Poplar 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 the 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.
