I found acer cappadocium maple, that tree looks very familiar to it, the tulip poplars appears to have to points with a lobe in the center while this tree just has a maple leaf form 1 point tip, although they do look of the same green and texture, your thoughts on the cappadocium?

     With all due respect, I am sure that isn't tulip poplar.  At least not the tulip poplar we have here.  Other than that, I am unable to help.

Tulip poplar.  The leaf in your hand isnt the best representative but up in the tree i see plenty of right ones.  Bark is right to my eyes too.  

Sassafrass has several styles of leaf on same tree and one of them has 3 fingers like ALF.

Certainly looks like tulip poplar to me too.  And, as Mike says, bark is right too.  Look at the bud.  Should be valvate (like a ducks bill).  Also the twig, the stipular scar should completely encircle the twig (a ring around the twig at the point the leaf petiole attaches to the twig). This is a characteristic of all the magnolia family of which tulip poplar is a member. Gets the name of tulip poplar from the pretty showy flower.

This crow is mighty chewy...  I should have looked at the foliage pic before opening my mouth.

Old saw fixer, don't take it too hard. I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.

In your defense the tree is sick and in decline so it doesnt look quite right

It’s in a mild climate on the southernmost tip of NS, cool summers and warmer winters, not ideal for it though as winters as still too cold for it and not enough sun/heat in the summer because of coastline fog(always foggy there), bout the only thing it’s got going is it would get watered often

I think NC is the home of epic poplar.  The more you deviate from that climate the less they perform.  Native wolf has some whoppers in N.VA and believe it or not there are gems growing here in middle TN if you can find ground that wasnt stripmined a few times already.  In a yard theyll bush like crazy and grow up to half inch rings per year once they find your gutter or septic.  In the woods they can grow very very tall and straight in a short time if in wet bottom lands where the peaks force them to stand tall for a patch of light.  Im a collector of poplar when practical. If a choice must be made between a 4" WO and a 4" poplar i will keep the poplar and maybe mill it in my lifetime.

I have a lot of tulip poplar to cut back along a spring fed creek a spring fed creek in the bottom where the pond is located.  Most is smaller than 12" DBH.  I know it isn't high quality firewood but my brother and one of my nephews take it to burn.  What is good to paint the stumps to prevent sprouting, I need something for the poplar and autumn olive that is rampant around here?
