Have a oppurtunity to gain some tulip poplar lumber from a large tree and was wanting to know how thick can poplar be kiln/air dried?
From contributor Ge
It dries fairly fast, so you could, if there is a market, think about 16/4. However, most people cut 4/4 with some 8/4 and sometimes 6/4. Any idea what the local market is interested in? That is the key.

The main benefit of poplar wood is that it dries really fast. As Gene Wengert said, you can make cuts according to your local market demand. There is demand of all types in local markets.

Wanted the poplar for myself and wanted to make a couple of larger timbers for a project
