Liriodendron tulipifera. Latin for "tulip tree tulip tree". So good, they named it twice.

part of the magnolia family, I believe.


What from Christ that soul can sever,
Bound by everlasting bands?
None shall take thee
From the Strength of Israel's hands.

Tulip but not a poplar, it actually has no relation to the poplar family. If I remember right it’s closest relationship is to the cucumber tree which includes magnolias.

true. but it has been "poplar" in common usage for a LOOOONG time.

and one source has Liriodendron as meaning "lily tree".

another source has it as "lyre-tree".

so; it's either "lily tree, tulip-bearing", or "lyre-tree, tulip-bearing".

Tulip wood is easily worked and carved. Being somewhat soft and knot frees. The grain does not tear. Takes glue, paint and fasteners well. Very useful for millwork and trim.
Was used in the past for bread bowls and kitchener.

Also a major honey plant over most of the east. Heavy producer of nectar making for a full bodied and flavored dark honey.

Burns fast, not bad for quick fires in the wood stove. But not an all nighter log.

Splits if ya look at it cross eyed!

Those grow straight and limbless in the wetter areas down here. I seek em out to latch my Summit climbers on when bowhunting. Can climb em quietly due to the tight bark.

No rot resistance at all so use for for interior use and never for ground contact.
