Why Tulip Poplar Trees?
Imagine leaving for work one morning during spring: before you leave, you notice 3 to 4 small blooms on your tree. When you come home that evening, that same tree is covered in a blanket of richly-hued florals. With the Tulip Poplar, a dazzling production and fast growth are not only possible but expected.
You'll have the brightest tree in the neighborhood. And you'll have no-nonsense care and fast growth. Even better? During the summer, you'll have a fast growing, well-formed green shade tree. When fall arrives, the Tulip's leaves turn to bright yellow for a dazzling show. So, our Tulip Poplar merges the best of both worlds.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Even better, our Tulip Poplar is highly resistant to insects and diseases, making it a healthful pick that provides a lifetime of enjoyment. And since it's easy to grow, it thrives in nearly any area. It's highly adaptable to a variety of soils, even wet soil.
But the best part is that we've planted, grown and nurtured our Tulip Poplar for months ahead of time, which means a healthy root system and developed branching for you. Now, your Tulip Poplar is an attractive front yard tree that will increase your home's value.
From climate to climate and no matter the temperature extremes, the Tulip Poplar wows because we've put in the extra work.
Plant your Tulip Poplar Tree and start looking forward to the change of seasons - instant beauty is just a click away!

Customer Reviews & Photos
So far so good
After reading multiple reviews I was skeptical, but so far I’m very pleased! The tree arrived within 3 days and around mid afternoon so perfect timing! Although it is skinny, I wouldn’t necessarily call it a stick lol. Then again I did order the 6-7 ft tree and it was actually pretty true to size! I would say it’s a little over 6ft. All of the leaves were green, and none were wilted or look water deprived. Immediately I put it in the ground, along with the root rocket fertilizer I had also purchased. I plan to write an update within the next few months as summer approaches. Their customer service is also very excellent! I spoke to a guy named Tim who walked me through the whole process and was very helpful! Looking forward to watching my new beauty grow
very fast shipping
Trees were outstanding. One of them has lost a few leaves but that is normal. they look great.
Planting the Tulipfera Poplar
A beautiful tree, my son and I planted it following your instructions and are watering daily. The leaves have burst forth, showing no signs of shock. She will be a lovely addition to our home and marking the day we bought our house. I canwait until fall when the leaves begin to turn color. Everyone should plant a tree.
Not sure, I need to see how it grows. It’s too soon for a review. The tulip poplar only had 6 branches at around 6” long. I was expecting longer branches The trunk is very straight though.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and partial sun to full sun (about 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day - but avoid areas with harsh afternoon sun). When you're ready to plant, dig a large hole to make plenty of room for the roots. The hole should be twice the width of your tree’s root system and just as deep.
Plant your tree so that the roots of the tree are covered and the stem is above ground level. Finally, water to settle and mulch around the tree to preserve moisture.
2. Watering: Young Tulip Poplars should be watered during extended dry spells, particularly in the summer months. Generally, you should water about once or twice weekly during hot, dry weather and once or twice bi-weekly in cooler months.
FGT Tip: Drooping branches are a sign of both over- or under-watering.
3. Fertilizing: Use only slow-release, 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer tablets for the first growing season. Fertilize twice a month when the tree is coming out of dormancy, then once a month during the summer. Stop fertilizing before the tree goes back into dormancy.
4. Pruning: Remove any branches that are growing outside of the designated planting area. To cut a branch, make a cut right next to the branch collar. The branch collar is the swelling that attaches the branch to the trunk. Remove any competing leaders as well.
