It's a keeper for sure. Two nice big maples out front, hackberry and tulip poplar on the north side, majestic white oak way out back and a yuge sawtooth oak hanging over the chicken coop. They're all a good safe distance from the house. Trees are worth their weight in gold IMO just for the shade, birds, squirrels etc. I love trees when they're in the right place.

My experience, poplars need to get some size to them before they become reliable heavy nectar producers. So the big ones need to be cherished and protected if honey is your game.

When I got into bees 40 years ago we had a couple giants just off the back corner of the place I grew up. Both were close to ten foot across. And there were a few dozen in that hollow over three foot with many more scattered through the area. About a mile away was an even bigger one sitting on a creek bank.

It was nothing to stack half a dozen shallow supers on for the poplar flow.

Some of those have good value.
Have an 8' butt here that I was told weighs 5500 lbs.
Two guys want it but can't haul it.
Shame to firewood it.
It bloomed same time as big leaf maple and
yes the bees loved it.
It was cute when small, and dangerous when big.

I thought yellow poplar was the one that grew on Allegheny River
ridges and different than tulip.
Always interesting tree / plant topics.

We just call them poplar in these parts and we have lots of them. Young ones or small branches make great beaver bait sticks. They love them.
