Benefits This particular Poplar can be harvested for firewood in 5-7 years, making it an excellent choice for garnering and replanting as a sustainable source of firewood. If the tree is cut down it will regrow from the stump. The wood is soft, therefore it burns much faster. Used for fast-growing shade while your other slowergrowing trees begin to mature.
