Liriodendron tulipifera

Commonly known as the tulip tree or yellow poplar, is a grand deciduous tree native to North America. Celebrated for its distinctive tulip-shaped flowers with green and orange hues, it adds a touch of magnificence to landscapes. The tree's large, four-lobed leaves turn a vibrant yellow in the fall, creating a stunning autumnal spectacle.
