Lake States Aspen Report No. 10
U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Lake States Forest Experiment Station
Aspen, because of its abundance in the Lake States, merits special consideration as to future management, utilization, and marketing. Although aspen lumber is used for many purposes, its chief use during the past decade has been for containers (boxes and crates). It gained its greatest prominence as container material during World War II.
Both producers and users of containers need general information as to availability and supply of aspen, its properties and usefulness for container material. With that in mind, this report on the use of aspen for containers has been prepared.
