The Black Tupelo is one of the most attractive trees around.
Summer leaves are a dark green with a high-gloss appearance, but the most spectacular time to see this tree is in the fall when it turns a deep red before dropping its leaves.
It grows in wet soils and can be found in both hardwood and coniferous forests.
Black Tupelo trees are usually found near rivers, streams, lakes, swamps, wet meadows, or bogs.
This tree can grow up to 60 feet tall, but it’s not very wide and can be planted as a single specimen or in groups to form a natural screen.
It has an upright shape, which makes it perfect for planting along your property line.
The Black Tupelo can also be used as an ornamental shade tree in your backyard or garden and will provide plenty of shade for you and your family all summer long.
