Tulip poplar is the Indiana state tree, and we had a (relatively) young one
growing in our yard when I was growing up. Read Hidden Life of Trees last
fall and loved it; also loved the author's obvious love for “his” trees!
Maybe it’s an age thing, but I feel more and more connected to everything
alive, and my sense of “alive” keeps expanding, too.
