Narrowleaf Cottonwood (Populus angustifolia)
|Common Name||Latin Name||Plant Family|
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 shoots are used in making baskets[227, 257].
The highly developed root system helps to reduce erosion when trees are planted on banks and slopes.
Wood – weak, soft, rather woolly in texture, without smell or taste, of low flammability, not durable, very resistant to abrasion[11, 227]. It weighs 24lb per cubic foot. The tree’s scarcity and small size make it commercially unimportant, though it is sometimes used locally for fence posts and fuel[227, 229].
