Populus tremuloides; Wood-pulp
A three part study was conducted on a single quaking aspen tree (Populus tremuloides): ( l) the strength and other physical properties of fiberboard made from the trunk, roots, and limbs using the cold soda pulping process, (2) the strength properties of paper made from the trunk, root, and limb sections using the Kraft pulping process, and (3) a chemical analysis of the trunk, roots, and limbs. Results of these studies indicate there are significant differences in many of the properties of the three parts of the tree, and that parts of the tree other than the trunk possess useful properties.
