Description: Yellow-poplar (Liriorlentlron tulipifera L.) is also commonly known as tulip poplar, tulip tree, white-poplar, whitewood, and "poplar" (60). It gets its name from the tulip-like flowers which it bears in the late spring. Because of the excellent form and rapid growth of the tree, plus the fine working qualities of the wood, yellow-poplar is one of the most important hardwood species in the United States. Yellow-poplar grows throughout the eastern United States from southern New England west to Michigan and south to central Florida and Louisiana. The species is also found in southern Ontario. It is most abundant and reaches its largest size in the valley of the Lower Ohio River Basin and on the mountain slopes of North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, Virginia, and West Virginia.
