THE GENUS populus (aspen / poplar (cottonwood) species) IN NORTH AMERICA
NOTE: this does NOT include "yellow poplar" / "tulip poplar"
which is commonly sold as "poplar" in lumber yards but which
is NOT actually a poplar (it's Liriodendron tulipifera)

This list is extracted from a wood-name list of some 26,000 species and 140,000 common names that I have accumulated over the years.

Some notes/caveats about the species listed here and the common names associated with them.
