One of the first advantages of aspen is its rapid growth. By 50-60 years, the tree reaches a very significant size. It can be prepared and processed. Let me remind you that spruce and pine need 120 – 150 years to reach true maturity. So, chopped aspen is able to recover much faster than spruce or pine.
Species of wood and lumber from which (in dried form) is stable and resistant to external influences, are not afraid of water, do not rot and do not warp. Aspen wood is dense, but easy to process. It is homogeneous, not susceptible to cracking, does not form a “splinter” and is poorly pricked. They use aspen more often in the exterior: they make roofs from aspen shingles, with a unique silver tint; Aspen is also used in furniture production (non-resinous and easy to polish and finish).
Building materials from aspen are lighter than those made from coniferous wood, they have practically no knots. Aspen easily withstands significant fluctuations in humidity and temperature, it is less heat conductive than conifers – therefore, lumber from it is widely used in saunas and baths. Products from aspen do not rot and do not mold. Because of their low cost, aspen is used in the manufacture of sleepers, pallets, pallets, etc.
