Abstract:
Just outside Highlands, in Horse Cove, stands a 145-foot yellow poplar tree that dwarfs all other surrounding trees, including several red oak trees. Scientifically known as LIRIODENDRON TULIPIFERA, the Horse Cove Poplar is commonly called the tulip poplar. The Wasilik Poplar, another yellow poplar located in North Carolina, was the national champion in the American Forestry Association's registry of big poplar trees until a larger tree was discovered in Bedford County, Virginia.
