Will not flower
I have a 4 year old Tulip tree that will not produce flowers. Otherwise tree is very healthy and tall.

Thanks for writing. If it's only four years old, your tulip tree may not be mature enough to bloom --- these trees can take a number of years before they bloom for the first time. Also: Be sure that it's in full sun (if it's shaded much by other trees it may not bloom at all). Other than that, all I can really recommend is patience. And keeping a sharp eye out in spring; because the blooms are green, they blend in with the leaves so well. Some people who have tulip trees in their yards never even notice the flowers!
