FAS American Tulipwood (Planed All Round)
Planed Tulipwood is very light, and easy to work with which makes it ideal for joinery, interior trim, light construction and toys. Its colours vary from olive green to yellow or brown and is supplied in FAS Quality Grade.
The very nature of Tulipwood makes it easy to work with and for interior work like sills, skirting boards and architrave you won’t find better value for money. The timber is easily painted, takes nails well without a tendency to split and glues well as well. So, it is an ideal timber for all your interior trim needs.
Our Planed Tulipwood is machined to order and is provided slightly over length so that it can be cut down on site. The two ends have a rough sawn finish and are planed to a smooth finish on the four long sides of the wood. It is important to enter your exact cutting list when working out prices in order to get the right price. For instance, if you order 4m lengths to cut down to 2m lengths then the one piece will cost more than the two (it’s also worth mentioning that your timber will most likely be supplied overlength anyway).
The Tulipwood Tree
Tulipwood is from eastern parts of Northern and Eastern America and is also known as Poplar wood. The tree can grow to be over 35m tall and over 2m in diameter. The tree is shade-intolerant and doesn’t survive well when flooded for long periods of time. Another problem for Tulipwood is when vines grow around them, not only do they block out sunlight but they also weight down branches forcing them to bend and break.
We supply the highest quality, FAS Grade, Planed Tulipwood. Only found in American, African and some European species, FAS quality grade is rightly sought after and is derived from the original First and Second Grade.
At iWood Timber Merchants, we have built our reputation on supplying the highest quality timber, ensuring you have the highest amount of usable American Tulipwood possible from your order.

FAS Quality American Tulipwood / Poplar Planed All Round from iWood Timber
Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 20 to 30 working days.
Delivery cost varies by location. Please click here to open our delivery cost page in a new window.
Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
The ordering process
