DescriptionAspen, Minnesota's largest forest type, covers nearly one-third of the commercial forest land in the State. Its major components are bigtooth aspen, P. tremuloides, both fast-growing, generally short-lived, aggressive pioneer species that readily become established in burns and clear cuttings. They cannot be "stored on the stump," as they become decadent rapidly after reaching maturity. Their wood is technically identical.
