A painting of a plywood sheet made of poplar wood.

Poplar is a tree that was quite popular in midwestern Europe late 19th century up to halfway 20th century. It’s a tree that grows straight up, grows really fast and doesn’t splinter much. Perfect for building quickly. It was so suiting for the time that extensive programs unrolled to ‘better’ the tree even further.

Although it lost a lot of it’s appeal lately, it might become more popular again in the near future, since the now-standard wood (spruce) could be having troubles adjusting to dryer climates.

The latin name for this type of tree is populus, which translate to both the people as refers to popular.
