Maybe this is your new tree:
"Yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), also called
tuliptree, tulip-poplar, white-poplar, and whitewood, is one
of the most attractive and tallest of eastern hardwoods. It
is fast growing and may reach 300 years of age on deep,
rich, well-drained soils of forest coves and lower mountain
They grow slow in my area. It seems we are at the northern
edge of their range. Dad planted some ~30 years ago and I've
yet to see any flowers. They should have been spread out
more, which hasn't helped their growth any. They have large,
really distinctive and pretty leaves in my opinion, which
more than makes up for the lack of flowers right now.
That's the one. There are 25 seedlings coming. About 15 or so will
be planted on my side of a property boundary WAAAAAY up in the corner
of my back 40 where a new owner of old property has erected a HUGE
deer stand about ten feet from my property line.
The rest will line the lane from the road to the house -- about 50 ft
apart, between existing plantings.
cheers, and thanx to all
