Hello everyone tonight again

Hi Leslie

Speaking for myself--poplar around here is not a very popular type of wood, very limited in its uses--except the discussion above of course--it isn't even very good for the stove, although I do burn it rather than throw it away--we here in this area of Ontario Canada, have a couple of natural polars, and a few introduced types like Carolina Poplar, and another type a real slim tall tree the name escapes me --there could be more, maybe someone that knows varieties better than I can come forward
