Liriodendron Tulipifera

 
 


We have wanted to plant a tree in our front yard for some time now. Partly this was to screen the street light opposite our house. But we also wanted to replace the tree removed by the previous owners. In the summer, our house is the only one on the street without the shade of a large tree to soften the afternoon sun.

We started by checking out a few candidates.

I have to say, they all kind of look alike in these pictures. But they each had their own unique charm.
