Catalpa.  grown in groves no limbs for 30 to 40 feet.  nice grain, light when dry.  smells like an old man with a pipe at 50 paces.  or 48.68 paces as WDH Danny said recently. Amen.

Poplar.  The ones I cut usually have some real size to them. They are most often straight and you can lay them just where you want them.

Years ago when I was falling in BC doug fir was my hands down favourite.  Back here in the east it's hemlock or white cedar.  Most of the lands I've worked on have had tall, straight trees with very few limbs on the bottom two-thirds.  It is easy to nudge them in the direction you want and they don't do a lot of collateral damage on the way down. 
Robin Hood had it just about right:  as long as a man has family, friends, deer and beer...he needs very little government!

I would have to say white pine, nothing like tipping the 80 footers over in the winter complete white out for a good 3 minutes,snow dust every where in the beard down the back of your coat refreshing and cold at the same time make you want to go tackle another one for the next rush of excitement
