Tulip Tree is native to the United States, but is primarily found growing east of the Mississippi River. Trees are fast growing and can reach heights up to 150 feet. This tree has many names such as tulip poplar, yellow poplar, or tulip tree. It gets its name because its flowers resemble those of the tulip. Its wood is soft and fine-grained, so is the wood of choice for use in organs. The tulip tree is also a major honey plant, yielding a fairly strong honey that is favored by bakers.
