Balsam poplar is generally regarded as one of the distinctly "inferior" species of the northern Lake States. It has, however, a definite place in the silvicultural treatment of low-lying lands subject to invasion by alder and other swamp shrubs, and its wood is being increasingly used for purposes where strength is not important. Management by the clearcutting system is recommended.
