Tulip Poplar’s Recent Overabundance

Q: I am an avid observer of all plant and animal life in and around my abode. I have observed the tulip poplar trees this past year have produced an overabundance of flowers and seed pods. Have you received reports from our area on a poplar super bloom event? 

A: I have not noticed anything unusual on my tree but if anyone would know about tulip poplar flowering, it would be local beekeepers, who go out of their way to collect tulip poplar honey. Contact the Forsyth Beekeepers Club (forsythbeekeepersclub.wildapricot.org ) or the Georgia Beekeepers Association, (gabeekeeping.com), they have numerous classes and sources of information for beekeepers.
