DescriptionThe management of aspen or popple (Populus tremuloides) has received little attention in the past, largely because of the former abundant supply of other and more valuable tree species in the Lake States. Because of a rapidly expanding market for all forest products during the past decade, particularly during the war, the attention and ingenuity of industry have turned toward the use of aspen. As a consequence, aspen has now become one of the important pulpwood species in the Lake States, and is used for many other products. That it will retain its place for some time to come seems quite certain in view of its large acreage, its aggressiveness, and new uses which are constantly being found. For this reason, there is need for information on the possibilities of managing aspen as a forest crop.
