    What is an ideal tree to plant for a fast growing large shade tree that is resistant to Japanese Beetle?


    A:  A Relative of the Magnolia, the Tuliptree grows to a majestic 70’ tall, and will grow up to 20 feet in a six year period.  This is one tree that the Japanese Beetles aren’t attracted to, and will be sure to shade your yard and house for decades to come. No other tree has a four-lobed leaf, and come May, the hefty cream and orange tulip-like flowers are sure to please.   (USDA hardiness zones 4 – 9)  You can purchase this tree at a local nursery, or at one of several tree distribution events being held this fall – We are selling #7 container grown landscape ’emerald city’  Tuliptree for $25.00 at the Story county and Lee County Operation ReLeaf Residential Tree Distribution Events this fall.  To download an order form, or register for a free tree planting and care workshop at these events, go to the following link:
