any thoughts on using T&G yellow poplar for interior walls in a sauna. ive read about benches and other accessories used in sauna construction, just not the wall material. sauna will be subject to heat and humidity while in use but it is an outdoor sauna with full sun year round and windows for air circulation.
The majority of log cabins the pioneers built were out of poplar logs. With that, the cabins were built using green logs. Many still standing with logs that are still healthy. Spare me the nonsense of poplar not holding up.

On May 3, 1805, Lewis and Clark camped near here on the Poplar River about 3.5 miles upstream from where it empties into the Missouri. They named the stream the Porcupine River after porcupine that were found in abundance in the area. The name was later changed to Poplar because of the wide-spread stands of poplar trees on the banks.
In 2014, the city made strides in keeping excess phosphorous and nitrogen (which contribute to unhealthy river algae blooms) out of the Clark Fork River by planting 90,000 hybrid poplar trees irrigated with the facility's treated effluent. Instead of reaching the river, trace amounts of phosphorous and nitrogen in the treated effluent are absorbed by the trees as nutrition.
A multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Georgia and two partner institutions have been awarded a $15.8 million grant over five years from the U.S. Department of Energy to reengineer poplar trees (Populus sp. and hybrids) to be used as a sustainable energy source. 59ce067264
