Poplar, an exceptional tree

Propopulus Team

One of the goals of ProPopulus is to inform society about why poplar is an exceptional tree, and the role played by poplar trees in the building of a new bioeconomy, substituting, when possible, fossil-based products with bio-based products and specifically poplar wood.

One of the many tasks we have undertaken is to produce informative material that shows the many benefits of populiculture, for both landowners and society. Also, we highlight the industrial uses of poplar, other than for furniture making and production of matches, which are the most well-known.
