My parents have always had tons of Tulip trees!
... straight, and perfectly shaped,
...blossom every year on Father's Day,
MANY, MANY years ago, I took one of their babies for my very own...
and rapidly outgrowing our 'city lot'
and Wikipedia says she'll average out at about 100' tall.
She is also HEAVY in Nectar ~ ie: drops sap allover the ground, making a sticky mess & attracting bees!!
To top it off, in the MANY years that we've had her... she's never produced a flower...
So I finally conceded that it would be best to 'do away with her'.
She wasn't in our 'pruning budget' this year.
