Cottonwood (Populus fremontii)
|Common Name||Latin Name||Plant Family|
Strips of the inner bark have been used in garments. This report does not make clear if this was merely for ornament, or whether the bark had a functional use[K].
An extract of the shoots can be used as a rooting hormone for all types of cuttings. It is extracted by soaking the chopped up shoots in cold water for a day.
The young twigs are peeled and split then used in basket making[61, 229, 257].
Wood – soft, weak, light, rather woolly in texture, without smell or taste, of low flammability, not durable, very resistant to abrasion[11, 229]. Used locally for fence posts, the trees are also frequently pollarded for fuel[82, 229].
