    I should know this....I took a classification class in college and remember seeing this one. But that was a long time ago. Anyone help me out???

    See photos below. The leaf should be the dead giveaway.

    Yes, yes. Thanks. They call it "Tulip Tree" around here. Liriodendron. That was actually on the contractor's exam for our state. :hammerhead:

    that would be the state tree of Tennessee. Funny thing is I rarely see any of them around here.

    I always considered tulip tree to be more of the tulip, saucer, magnolia variety.

    Yes, the Saucer Magnolia is often (erroneously) referred to as "tulip tree" as well.

    Guess now I'LL have to review the trees in Dirr's book just to clean it up for myself. If you guys do much planting at all I would seriously consider getting a copy. Think its the Manual of hardy trees or something. Use it almost every week and can't recall the exact name:cry:
