Curious as to what this tree is...

Recommended Posts

Happened upon this tree on my walk this evening.

Such unusual leaves.

Can anyone identify please.

Thanks in advance.

Indian bean tree.

 

Changed my mind, it is a variation of Tulip tree

Tulip tree was my first thought. Leaves don’t look quite the norm though 

There is a version of the Tulip tree referred to in the USA as" yellow Poplar " were the leaves are more like this one . Could it be that ?

Yes Stubby. You’re right, yellow poplar is one of the names the Yanks give to the Tulip tree, because over there I guess it grows like poplar.

In reality the Tulip tree is actually part of the magnolia family. I only know this because we planted an Avenue of Tulips on the estate I work on, so I researched the tree.

Also known Stateside as Rainbow Poplar due to the occasional rainbow array of colours of the timber in a mature specimen
