My next door neighbor had a tulip poplar cut down today. One of the largest I have ever seen. At least 5 feet in diameter. When it shed it's blooms in the spring, my whole yard would turn yellow. When it hit the ground, it shook my whole house. I thought they had hit it, but it was just the size of the tree. It wasn't near the house. I sure will miss the buzzing of the bees in that one, come spring.
