ship masts ()

I was under the impression that poplar trees were regularly used for masts because they are tall and straight. For this reason and for lumber to be shipped back to the Mother Country, I had understood that south Georgia is full of pines because the hardwoods were wiped out by King George 300 years ago. Perhaps Danny Hamsley of Perry, GA can weigh in on this.
