    Tulip Poplar! “It is native to eastern North America from Southern Ontario and Illinois eastward across southern New England and south to central Florida and Louisiana. It can grow to more than 50 m (165 feet) in virgin cove forests of the Appalachian Mountains, often with no limbs until it reaches 25Ð30 m (80Ð100 feet) in height, making it a very valuable timber tree.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liriodendron_tulipifera
