The Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) is the official tree of the Town of Fort Erie, selected because it is native to the area and a Carolinian species. The Tulip Tree is noteworthy for its large tulip shaped leaves and fragrant tulip-like flowers that appear in mid-spring. The Town tree grows 80 to 100 feet tall and maintains a fairly narrow oval crown, even as it grows older.
