Characteristics of Balsam Poplar Wood

Balsam Poplar is a famously light, malleable wood. Its sapwood is nearly white in appearance, while its heartwood is greyish white to greyish brown, often with reddish brown undertones. Its grain is generally straight, but is occasionally prone to spiral or interlocked-grain features. In comparison, it has a pleasantly uniform texture.
