Tuliptree (Liquidambar styraciflua) or Tulip Poplar is a native species easily recognizable by its unique leaf shape.  A large tree with bright green leaves 3-8 inches long that turn golden-yellow in fall.  The tulip shaped flowers, hence the name, are yellow, orange, and green appear in May and June usually high up in the trees canopy.  A great choice for large areas.  Native Americans made dugout canoes from Tuliptree trunks.
