I always thought Adler was indigenous to the coastal regions of Alaska, BC, Washington, Oregon, and Northern California...
other woods to consider would be Birch and Aspen...
but just the same... Types of Alder Trees: Sitka Alder:
It has thin leaves and grows to about 25 feet in height at its full maturity. They are sometimes used as shrubs for privacy or wind protection. Red Alder:
This is the largest species that can grow to nearly 80 feet at its peak. They can also be found in the Pacific Northwest. Black Alder:
Mostly found in Europe, this type of alder tree is known for its height. White Alder:
While most alders prefer to be close to a water source such as streams, rivers and marshy wetlands, this type of alder can withstand drier climates. Green Alder:
Small and slow growing with a crown of bright, bushy green leaves, this alder can adapt to soil and weather conditions and is often used as a shrub for landscaping. https://www.thespruce.com/alder-tree...shrubs-3269701 Alder Tree Uses:
This hardy tree is often used when an area is under reforestation. It stabilizes soil in rainy, wet areas. The wide, leafy canopy makes the alder tree a perfect shade tree for home gardeners.
The cones are bitter tasting but have a high protein content. The bark can be boiled into a tea to be used as an anti-inflammatory. The salicin in the bark has been used to treat skin irritations such as those from poison oak or insect bites.
The hardwood of the alder has been used for a wide variety of purposes, from the pilings of the foundation of the floating city of Venice to furniture, cabinets and trim. The Fender Musical Instruments Corporation has built guitar bodies out of alder wood since the 1950s.
