    Don’t know another that looks quite the same. It does look slightly different than the ones I’m used too, but that’s what I’d call it based on what I can see.

    I'm not sure. I don't remember seeing one with a flat edge like that. The bark doesn't seem right either.

    Yup, one of the best trees for bow drills in Georgia.

    Thank you all! I was pretty certain that’s what it was. Being here in Georgia I figured. I collected some dead fall I’m going to dry out for a drill set.

    E15811AA-252C-459B-938B-D7AFFD519BAC.jpeg For sure it is. Leaves can vary on size depending on the amount of sunlight in the location. Also they have yellow flowers during a certain time of the year. The inner bark makes a perfect nest for your bowdrill ember too. It’s almost kind of hairy that way.

    Absolutely Tulip Poplar. No question, final answer.

    Yes. Tallest "hardwood" tree in North America. Used to be a king of the eastern forest until clear cutting for furniture plants came along. Can be died to look like many other woods. Straight grain. Once AKA the "Telephone Tree," but that makes no sense too the last couple of generations, just as "dialing a number" will soon fade away.
