Tuliptrees (Liriodendron tulipfera) are one of the largest trees in the area. They were chosen for this tour for several reasons. First, they have distinct, tulip-shaped leaves and pretty flowers that resemble tulips. They are also very abundant in many locations in the park.
This tree can be found next to the trail along Spring Lake. It was planted in a berm years ago, and is directly next to the trail. This tree is quite small for the area, as most Tuliptrees in the park are at least 2 feet in diameter and well over 50 feet in height. Tuliptrees have very straight trunks.
