Tulip Poplars Susceptible to Drought

Tulip Poplar

The shoreline in the Wetlands grows wider with each passing day as the water level drops. Although there have been storms moving through the area daily during the past week, carrying substantial amounts of rain, they have been scattered storms and not necessarily pouring down water into the Wetlands.

Tulip Poplars are more susceptible to drought than some other trees in our area. Under normal circumstances Yellow (Tulip) Poplar begins to turn earlier than most deciduous trees in our area but I think that the overall lack of moisture, locally, may be speeding up the process.
