Tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera)
"If the Tulip-tree is particularly admired for its splendid appearance, and is useful as a medicine, it is not less interesting from the various economical purposes to which its wood is applied. Perhaps no native tree is more serviceable, or more extensively used. […]
The trunks of the largest trees are often hollow, and are made into pettiaugers, and canoes, of sufficient capacity to hold many people. From its being appropriated to the latter purpose, it takes the name of canoe-wood. The Indians esteem it the fittest kind of lumber for these boats. It is also used for coach panels."
