Q.I Would Like To Grow Another Or More Tulip Tree From My Tulip Tree

Zone 02769 | Anonymous added on June 6, 2021 | Answered

We recently had a bad storm and the wind took down my tulip tree that was from my grandfathers farm it is not the right time of year for fall propagation. I will have to cut it up and remove it all the tree snapped at the truck base sadly. It has the flowers on it right now as I type. My question is , is there a way to get new tree/trees started from what I have that has been blown over , can I salvage anything from my grandfathers tree. I would much rather that than buy another from some random place thank you
