Lake States Aspen Report No. 13
U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Lake States Forest Experiment Station
In considering possible uses for the large supply of aspen in the Lake States, veneer and plywood manufacture should not be overlooked. Although aspen is not currently in great demand as a veneer species, the reason is not because of technical deficiencies of the wood for this purpose, but rather because there is no appreciable veneer industry in the region adapted for using aspen as small logs, the form in which it is most available.
