Botanucal name: Liriodendron Tulipifera
Weight: 450 kg/m3
Origin: Eastern North America



The stated weight was measured with a moisture percentage of approx. 12%. American Yellow Poplar is also called Tulip Poplar. Its pale yellow to white sapwood is not always clearly distinguishable from its heartwood. Its heartwood tends to be light cream to yellowish brown. Occasional some gray or white streaks could occur. Also striking, in planted Yellow Poplar, the amount of sapwood is way larger.

Futhermore, it could be described as soft, straight-grained, light in weight and medium strong wood which is very easy to work with.

Interesting facts:

* Tulip trees (Liriodendron tulipifera) live up to their name with spectacular spring blooms that resemble to tulips.

* Technically, Yellow Poplar does not belong to the Populus genus itself, it is actually a member of the Magnolia family.
