How about Balm of Gilead? That’s the ancient name. I like the smell of the resin. So do honey bees apparently, here they commonly use it in hives as a filler, possibly because it has anti fungal, anti biotic properties.
The negative name might be related to the lumber, it has a slight musky smell, but not nearly as much as cottonwood. Or maybe because it’s regarded as #### poor. It is very wet, and very heavy, but just due to water content. It is very straight, splits great frozen, and should be ideal for log cabins, provided the bark is peeled straight away, so spring cutting once the cambium is active and loose. Dry density is very low, probably like fast grown spruce. Makes ok dunnage timber.
