How To Prevent Tulip Tree From Flowering

Question From: CALIFORNIA
Q: Can I eliminate a Tulip Tree from flowering? It's extremely messy when dropping the seeds and it's over my swimming pool. Wish I had known there was female and male Tulip Trees. Thanks -John

A: I recommend you get the advice of a certified arborist. If there were a spray that would do the job you would be contaminating your pool. Not a good idea. I'd remove it. To find an arborist in your area go to and enter your zip code. Best Nancy and Happy Gardening
