Visual Interest in Spring and Fall

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 though it takes the blooms some time to develop (10 to 15 years), they're unmatched. 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 oyur 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!

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.

This tree is dedicated to our beloved Cooper.

I purchased this tree along with the sunset maple for a beautiful contrast in color for the fall. Minor damage during shipping, but hoping that won't affect the tree. Will sen photos in the Spring!

As usual, great experience. I only buy from FGT. It's in the ground, "drop & grow bag." Let's see how it does. Arrived in good condition.
