Origin: Tulip, also known as Yellow Poplar, is found in the United States from New England, west to Michigan, and South to Florida.

Color: The sapwood of Tulip is a creamy white. The heartwood is a light yellow to green color which turns brown with light exposure. It can also be seen in mineral stained colors ranging from dark purple to red, green, or yellow (sometimes referred to as Rainbow Poplar). The grain is usually straight; it is rarely found with figure.

Janka Hardness: 540 (soft). Hardness is similiar to Douglas-Fir.

Decay and Weather Resistance: Low to moderate decay resistance and is susceptible to insect attack..

Workability: Tulip is very easy to work with; it is a lightweight wood with low density. Sometimes it can leave fuzzy surfaces and edges so sanding to finer grits of sandpaper may be necessary. It nails/screws, glues, and stains well.

Uses: Tulip has a variety of uses including furniture, cabinets, boxes or crates, interior joinery, and turnings or carvings.
