Plate XXVII. Map showing the distribution of Liriodendron Tulipifera.
Explanation of the map.
While the extreme geographical limit is here shown, the tree is not equally abundant over all the territory. It is rare and of stunted growth in northern New York and east of the Hudson River, owing to the severe winters; near the coast in the Carolinas, and over the greater part of the region south of Tennessee, owing to unfavorable soil. This image is from Liriodendron in the Drugs and Medicines of North America.
