Brad, thanks for sharing. A good read.:icon_thum
Now we need to genetically engineer the poplar to grow in 8/4 with perfectly square edges:lol:

Imagine a mahogany tree that grows as straight and fast as a poplar.

That is where this is heading. Weyerhauser has been doing genetic hybrids for years and their Lyptus product is a cross of two prolific species of Eucalyptus. The Lyptus can grow 100 feet, 14-18" diameter in 12 years and that wood is HARD.

I have split off the GE debate to "get it off your chest" area.
