Yellow Poplar is widely found in the eastern U.S. These trees grow taller than any other U.S hardwood species. Yellow Poplar reaches heights of around 100 to 150 feet. It is straight grained and medium textured. With its property being medium dense, it glues well too. It also takes a variety of finishes. Yellow Poplar is commercially used in furniture, millwork, picture frames, baskets and doors. Due to its statuesque appearance, shiny leaves and unique flower, it is used as an ornamental tree for gardens and parks. Book Yellow Poplar today at EG.
