Cottonwood Description

Alder’s flexible workability and excellent finishing capabilities make it one of North America’s superior hardwood species for manufacturers. It’s flexibility allows it be used alone or together with other species. Alder is a closed or fine grained wood similar to cherry, birch and maple. It is widely used in both solid wood and veneer applications. Alder has a light uniform color of both heartwood and sapwood which make it easy to form, fasten and finish.
