Indiana State Tree

Indiana State Tree

The tulip tree (Liriodendron Tulipifera), known also as yellow poplar, was adopted by the 1931 Indiana General Assembly. It attains great height and can be found throughout the state. The leaf is distinctive (it appears in the border of the state seal), and the lovely bell-shaped greenish-yellow flowers appear in May or June. The soft white wood has many uses. (IC 1-2-7-1)
