Massive tree in my backyard. Didn’t realize it had any flowers before but it is currently dropping these flowers. What tree is this?
Thanks! Yeah, it is quite tall, between 100 – 150 feet high and not much limbs at the bottom half.

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
