Plant Description - The Tulip Poplar or Yellow Poplar, Liriodendron tulipifera, a magnificent tree that has beautiful bright green leaves that turn a lovely butter yellow in the fall. In the late spring and late summer, the Tulip Poplar bears lovely tulip like flowers that are greenish yellow outside and orange inside. The trunk is erect and columnar with a cylindrical head. Tulip Poplars are very tough deciduous trees originally native to North America. They make excellent reforestation and timber trees and are known to live for centuries under the right conditions. With this in mind, Tulip Poplars make perfect candidates for reforestation programs such as the USDA Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and programs sponsored by the EPA.

Planting Instructions - Dig a hole three times the diameter of the root system, with a depth no deeper than the original soil line on trunk. Break up the soil to the finest consistency possible. Place plant in hole and fill, compacting the fill dirt. Water the plant heavily to seal soil around the roots and remove air pockets. Fertilize according to the recommendation of your local agriculture extension agents, or fertilize based on your own knowledge and experience.
