Tulip Poplar ( Liriodendron tulipifera )

The Tulip Poplar is a fast growing fabulous shade tree that grows up to 6 feet per year and turns bright yellow in the fall when the leaves change.   It is a very hardy deciduous (loses its leaves each winter) shade tree that is not susceptable to disease.  Once mature (10-20 years) it will produce tulip like flowers each spring to early summer.   The tree also has very uniques large lobed leaves that resemble a tulip, or perhaps even a helping hand.   Whatever the leaves remind you of, they are very large (6-10 inches)  and offer excellent cover or shade.    The wood of the Tulip Poplar is of exceptional quality and is becoming more and more common as a source of furniture making and quality building.
