DescriptionThe use of bigtooth aspen (Populus grandidentata Michx.), quaking aspen (P. tremuloides Michx.), and cottonwood (P. deltoides Bartr.) by the pulp and paper industry has increased greatly during the past decade. This expanded use has stimulated research on the genetic improvement of Populus. For the past 12 years an industry-sponsored aspen program has been underway at The Institute of Paper Chemistry (Einspahr and Renson 1964). One of its major goals has been the improvement of wood properties important to pulp and paper quality. During these 12 years a number of selected trees were evaluated and a number of studies have been completed in which wood, fiber, and pulp properties were obtained for individual trees.
