In Tennessee, Tulip Poplars Reign Mightest Among Hardwood Trees

POPLAR TREES OR TULIP POPLARS ARE THE STATE TREE OF TENNESSEE. Its early spring blossoms look like a beautiful tulip with colors of cream, orange and limesh green. Is anything more beautiful?

One of the most stunning aspects of this tree is how straight it stands even and especially into maturity.  The bark above is also beautiful  and easy to identify as a poplar.

Will be back later to talk a little about the amazing----at least to me---places some of my readers are from. Who knew? Certainly not I.
