Anbody intereted in poplar logs - Portland, OR area.


Neighbor who is not on line is looking to cut down 4 Lombardy poplars. These are each about 40 feet tall.
The trees are in an area between two houses and are going to be a real project to remove. He's going to use a commercial tree outfit to get the trees out.
Anybody in the Portland, OR area interested in buying some poplar logs?

I take it you've never seen the inside of a Lombardy poplar log?
Post over where the turners hang out. It's not lumber.

Hi George. As you know, it's not much by way of turning stock either. Here in NW Oregon there's so much better wood, like Western Big Leaf Maple, that's commonly available for *free*. If I was going to pay for any yard tree wood it'd have to be a Black Walnut, Plum, figured/burled WBL Maple or Madrone. Other than those, we locals get more free wood than we can use - and much of the stuff like Poplar, Red Oak and Alder end up being given away to the turning chapter raffles.
Don't get me wrong, there is some value to turners for woods like Poplar. It's a fine wood for a beginner who just needs to make shavings and practice, practice, practice. But I'd certainly not expect them to have to pay for it.

That would be tulip-poplar, sometimes called yellow poplar, which isn't a poplar at all, but a magnolia.
Lombardy has a million seventy one branch roots per foot, only half of which are rotten....
