Tulip Trees

from: William Berg




The Tulip Tree has got its name from its tulip shaped flowers.
The flowers of a Tulip Tree are located at great heights and
typically reach a size of 2.5 inches. The Tulip Tree produces
monoecious flowers with yellow-green petals. The corolla has a
beautiful vivid orange shade. Some people find the leaves of the
Tulip Tree similar to tulips too, at least with a little
imagination. The leaves are four lobed and have a notch at the
tip. A Tulip Tree leaf will typically reach a length of 4-6
inches in diameter. The leaf colour is bright green and will
turn yellow in autumn.



The Tulip Tree is sometimes called "The King of the Magnolias".
It is called Liriodendron tulipifera in Latin, and it belongs to
the Family Magnoliaceae. The Tulip Tree is related to the
Chinese Tulip Tree (Liriodendron Chinese).



The Tulip Tree is utilized as timber and is very appreciated
among carpenters since the wood is easy to work with. Tulip Tree
wood has a pale yellow color and is particularly popular in
furniture, wood carvings, cabinetry, veneer, jewelry boxes and
musical instruments. Earlier, the Tulip Tree was frequently used
in canoes created by Native Americans. The Tulip Tree bark has
been used as a substitute for cinchona in traditional remedies.



The popular Tulip Tree is known by many names in English,
including Canoewood, Saddletree, Tulipwood, Whitewood, Canary
Whitewood and American Whitewood. The Tulip Tree is not a
poplar, but it is still commonly referred to as Tulip poplar,
Hickory poplar, White poplar and Yellow poplar.



Apart from being an appreciated timber tree, the Tulip tree is
also planted as a shade tree and ornamental tree. It is a
remarkably fast growing tree and can grow 50 feet tall in eleven
years. During spring and early summer it will blossom with
beautiful flowers. The twigs of a Tulip Tree will turn red and
become shiny during the winter, which will add colour to the
garden. The fruits of the Tulip Tree are also very beautiful.
Immature fruits are green and will gradually turn brown as they
mature. In fall, they will be ripe and have the shape of small
cones. Tulip Tree fruits are popular among squirrels, rodents,
rabbits, birds and other wild animals. Bees and butterflies will
instead eat the nectar from the flowers, and the deer will
happily browse the new twigs.



The Tulip Tree is though, adaptable and will withstand most tree
diseases and pests. Plant your Tulip Tree in moist and
nutritious soil, ideally close to water. Tulip Trees are very
found of moist soil and will often grow near marshlands, streams
and rivers. Acid soil should be avoided. The Tulip Tree requires
direct sunlight, but this is usually not a problem since the
Tulip Tree grows fast and becomes very tall. The oldest known
Tulip Trees are older than 15 years.



In North America, Tulip Trees are found from the Great Lakes to
Florida in the south. Forest growing Tulip Trees will typically
reach a height of 100 feet and form a tall limb-free bole. If a
Tulip Tree is planted in a more open area, it will instead grow
a pyramid shaped crown that eventually turns oval with age.
