Give your home the attention to detail it deserves with all-natural, maintenance-free Poplar Bark Siding. Sourced only during the summer months from felled Tulip Poplar trees, this siding is easy to install and maintains its beautifully-rustic appearance with no staining or sealing required. Environmentally-friendly, as well as decorative and practical, Poplar Bark Siding is naturally resistant to the elements, does not attract carpenter bees or termites, and adds a layer of insulation to your home. As a kiln-dried product, it is suitable for both interior and exterior walls, making a beautiful accent to windows, porches, dormers, gables, and even hot tub enclosures. Pre-ordering is recommended as supply can be limited due to the short harvesting season. Please call today with any questions you may have.

Features & Benefits of Poplar Bark Siding:
Low Maintenance – Poplar Bark Siding are virtually maintenance-free, never requiring staining, sealing, or chemical treatments.
Extreme Durability – Poplar Bark is a natural protector, resistant to both harsh weather and insects.
Ease of Installation – Like Cedar Shakes and similar sidings, Poplar Bark Siding affixes easily to a prepared subsurface with screws or ring-shanked nails.
Versatility – Poplar Bark Siding can be used on both interior and exterior walls and with many different architectural styles, giving you the choice of complete wall cover or simply a small accent area.
Quality – Harvested immediately after the tree is felled, the bark is inspected and then delivered to the plant, where it is re-inspected, sorted, graded, and then carefully kiln-dried to ensure stable moisture content. Our bark is inspected a minimum of 10 different times throughout the manufacturing process.
Energy Efficiency – In addition to being renewable, biodegradable, long-lasting, and all natural, Poplar Bark Siding also adds a layer of insulation to your home, thereby decreasing your carbon footprint.

Coverage Calculations:
First, figure the square feet of area to cover.
Use the following formula to calculate how much material needed for a 2” lap:

Example: 25’ x 20’ = 500 sf of surface area
500 sf of surface area / .83 = 602 sf of material needed
**Add waste factor of 10-15%**
602 x 1.10 = 662.2 > 662 sf of Poplar Bark needed

Storage Prior To Installation:
Keep the Poplar Bark dry prior to installation. Stack siding off the ground and under cover. If the bark is to be stored over damp ground or concrete, place a moisture barrier under the siding. Stored siding should be 4 to 6 inches above the ground with air circulating freely around and throughout the stack. The bark should be protected with a waterproof covering elevated in the center so that water does not pool on the cover.
