The anatomical properties of three poplar timber clones viz., G-48, S7C15 and Wimco A26 were studied. From the studies it was observed that the Populus deltoids S7C15 and Wimco A26 clones were showing lower strength value as compared to Melia dubia species. Populus deltoids Clone G48 has shown good anatomical and strength properties when compared with Melia dubia. The anatomical properties of three clones have shown lesser values as compared to Melia dubia. Plywood samples were prepared for three clones, and tested for physical and mechanical properties viz. moisture content, Modulus of rupture (MoR), Modulus of Elasticity (MoE) and water resistance showing pass standard results as per Indian Standard IS: 303 to study their suitability for making plywood.
