Basment window trim

Quick question. I am in the process of putting up the trim in my finished basement. I have 2 windows that need to have finish trim installed. What wood would you recommend for this? Pine or Poplar? I'm leaning towards poplar since I won't have to deal with nots in the wood. The rest of the outside trim molding will be painted white along with the finish trim for the windows.

Any input?

Poplar is a better product to paint. I use it all the time when I do cabinetry paint jobs. I personally don't think that pine turns out very nice.

Paint trim

You will find that finger-jointed, paint-grade poplar trim is the most affordable. As indicated, you won't have to deal with the knots like in pine.
