Tuliptree


The Tulip tree, or Tulip Poplar, is Indiana’s state tree. It is commonly planted for reforestation purposes because of its rapid growth and the commercial importance of its wood. It also is often planted as an ornamental tree. The tree’s leaves are interestingly shaped like tulips, hence its name. The fruits of the tree provide food for squirrels in the late autumn and winter months. White-tailed deer are often attracted to the tree and browse among its twigs for food. The tree can grow to be between 80 and 120 feet in height.
