There are hundreds of species of oak trees that grow naturally in North America. The trees grow as tall as maples, have spiral shaped leaves and produce flowers or acorns. The trees also shed and turn different bright colors in the Fall. Expect these trees to last for decades, withstanding diseases and various weather conditions. Oak wood is known for its strength and durability and commonly used in construction. The oak tree is a central portion of many ecosystems, but it is endangered due to the widespread clearing of forests all over the world.
Tulip trees, also known by the genus name Liriodendron tulipifera, produce tulip-like flowers in various colors of white, yellow, purple or pink. The trees are frequently used in horticulture. Most leaves have unique four-lobed shapes with flowers that have nine tepals. Although the leaves are deciduous, many people enjoy picking the flowers right after they bloom; however, some plants take an average of 10 years to flower. Despite the flowering plants, tulip trees can exceed oak and maple trees in size and grow 100 up to 200 feet with trunks varying from four to fix feet in width. The largest trees are found in groves and forests.
