A few days ago the post was about the tuliptree. So is this one. This tree is about four blocks from our house. It may be the largest tuliptree I have seen. Note red arrow indicating the first branch above the street lamp. What a piece of timber!
The white line through the top roughly indicates a "normal" growth pattern. This giant was adversely affected in a storm a few years ago, and thus a branch has grown somewhat askew.
The tree to the right is directly across the avenue from the giant above. Its shape is more the norm for the yellow poplar. This is quite a large example in its own right.
