Liriodendron tulipifera-Tulip Tree
Ok, the green or black ash in my back yard was struck by lightning one yr. prior to our moving into the home. I am now ready to plant something near by to eventually replace said tree.
What are your feelings on the Tulip tree? Good and bad feelings, I'd like to hear it all. It won't be extremely close to the deck, the current tree was planted far too close in my opinion. Every time we fire up the grill, it heat scorches leaves, I hate having to lop off limbs just to protect it!
I am currently redoing my backyard with the intend of drawing butterflies in droves, that is why I also was drawn to this particular tree. :)
