I am thinking about milling some lumber from my trees for some projects. Not 1" boards buy more like 2" or thicker for structural projects like shed roof trusses, rough 2x4s, etc. I have a tulip poplar or 2 I may use but I also have a stand of some aspens and a cottonwood. I'd like to use those trees more if I can. Has anyone used them as lumber? How is it compared to pine?
