Leaf I.D. needed

Posted by Woodland_Creature GA (My Page) on

I cut some trees down last year when I moved into my house. One of them is looking to regrow, it seems. It's too small to get a decent picture, but I did pluck a rather large leaf from it.

It's not a poplar or black gum--the two trees on either side of it--at least I think it isn't.

I thought maybe it could be a sweet gum, but it looks WAY too large for that or the other two trees mentioned above. It's about 7'' across at the widest points.

Any clues?

Tuliptree, maybe. Liriodendron tulipifera.

Yes, that is what it is.
