A direct descendant of the Tulip Poplar planted in 1785 by our first President, George Washington, on the grounds of Mount Vernon, his home on the Potomac. More than two centuries later, the original Tulip Poplar continues to stand. Through the work of the National Arboretum, Rahway's Tulip Poplar is one of 1,000 descendants produced and sold through American Forests' Famous and Historic Trees Program.
