how come tulip poplar didn't get a slice of that pie? And no Northern red and scarlet oak?

Don't get me wrong, some hickories are exceptional but how did that get 37% of the readers choice when hickories aren't even sold in nurseries.

Perhaps next year we will include Tulip poplar and Scarlet oak.

Hickory was a choice due to its HUGE natural Piedmont and north Georgia population, and that this tree is often overlooked as a valuable landscape tree worthy of conservation.
