Aspen Wood Characteristics
Aspen trees grow to a height of 40-60 feet tall. It grows quickly to full height, making it the first obvious populates of recently felled forests. Its wood takes nails and screws well and easily bonds with paint and stain, making it ideal for many uses. It is a fine-grained wood with considerable stiffness, but is still workable, making it an ideal alternative to basswood for wood carvers.
