In Minnesota, USA, at least (and perhaps in some of the other Great Lakes 
states), Populus tremuloides is used for the manufacture of 
high-quality paper.

I know that in the same region Betula is used for the manufacture of 
matches, popsicle sticks and other small items.  They may also utilize 
Populus for these, but I'm not sure about that.
