Ogeechee Tupelo

Ogeechee Tupelo (#16)

Native to Georgia, the honey made from the nectar is known as “tupelo honey” and it is noted for attracting wildlife.  The wood is light, soft, and tough, but not strong.  It is coarse-grained, dif?cult to split, and of little value.  The tree is too rare and small to be economically important in the timber industry.
