Description: Eastern cottonwood (Populus deltoides), one of the largest eastern hardwoods, is short-lived but the fastest-growing commercial forest species in North America. It grows best on moist well-drained sands or silts near streams, often in pure stands. The lightweight, rather soft wood is used primarily for core stock in manufacturing fumiture and for pulpwood. Eastern cottonwood is one of the few hardwood species that is planted and grown specifically for these purposes. Besides the typical eastem variety (var. deltoides), there is a western variety, plains cottonwood {var. occidentalis}. Its leaves, more broad than long, are slightly smaller and more coarsely toothed than the typical variety.

Keywords: Populus deltoides
