Have you asked if they have 3/4" in stock or if they can get it?
BTW I used 10 mm spruce plywood for my stretchers. It's a lot lighter and did the job well for me.
But if you are stuck on 3/4 inch, Aspen plywood I suspect that asking the local suppliers would get results.
Or, did you mean Poplar? There is poplar plywood that is made from Yellow Poplar, also called Tulip Wood. It is not a local wood, and not cheap.
It also does not take nails well.
You said you asked around, you didn't say where or whom you asked.
A google search turned up three suppliers, on the first page, all be it not 3/4 inch.
If your friend found 3/4 Aspen it is out there, just have to dig to find it.
Frankly I think you are looking for phantom. I've used a lot of Aspen lumber over the years, it's weak, subject to rot, weathers rapidly and it's softer then most other local woods.
It does however take nails well.
