I hadn’t taken much notice of it until a friend mentioned it to me a few days ago. He said, “You might want to do yourself a favor and take that Tulip tree down while it’s still small.” Upon later reflection, we noticed it wasn’t a Tulip tree, but most likely a fast growing softwood.
I don’t know about you, but I am not interested in having a fast growing softwood tree about 30 feet away from the house. I remember in my past life, we removed a 20 year old Tulip tree that was about 80 feet tall. I couldn’t believe it when the homeowner told me that.
Since I haven’t figured out what kind of tree it is, I thought I would put it out to you. I know it’s not a Tulip…the leaves are nothing like them. I was thinking it could be a Poplar or an Aspen, but the leaves don’t quite fit. Thereare over 40 different types of Poplars, so it could be one of them.
If you know what kind of tree this is, please let me know while it’s small enough to cut down and drag into the woods. I can always replant an Oak in its spot. They seem to be springing up all over the place.
