The Kentucky YellowWood Trees: More information
Charles Marshburn Sends a link to Tree Pictures Online.com: YellowWood Tree Pictures
with over a dozen photos of the fabulous flowering tree.
Billy Joe Fudge is on the case. He notes the scientific name bears tribute to the Commonwealth: Cladrastis kentea. He remembers finding a stand away from limestone cliffs - even though, he notes, the tree ddoes have a need for alkaline soil. These were, he said, in the valley behind the Keltner, Adair Co., KY store, and may have been in Green County. He wasn't sure of the County lines. That's not far from the Metcalfe County line, either.
The tree is also called Virgila sometimes. But most commonly, it is Kentucky Yellowwood, and secondly, American Yellowwood. And he says, Wikipedia's entry on Yellowwood says, "Kentucky Yellowwood is recommended as one of the best medium sized trees for cultivation an ornamental plant in gardens."
That entry also says "The yellow heartwood is used in small amountsfor specialist furniture and gundstocks and decorative woodturning."
