If memory serves there was a mill out east Anglia way advertising for pop in
F&BT.

I got quite excited for a moment but they only want nice straight knot free
sticks like the canadensis hybrids, not the scabby horrid lumps of nigra
that fill my yard.

As has been mentioned, at best it only goes for packaging so most of the
value disappears into the haulage.

Veneer poplar was rotary peeled into sheets and used for making things
like
fruit baskets, strawberry punnets and matches, all markets that have
pretty
much disappeared now.  It had to be fairly knot free but I don't recall it
getting very good prices.
