The Scientific (Greek) 'Liriodendron' actually means "lily tree". It is sometimes referred to as tulip poplar or yellow poplar, and the wood simply as "poplar", although not closely related to the true poplars. It is in fact related to the magnolia family. Other common names include canoewood, saddle-leaf tree, and white wood.
