A ‘symbol of the life of the University’


When Davie Poplar Jr. was planted 100 years ago at UNC, people assumed that the tree would soon be the only Davie Poplar remaining on McCorkle Place. The planting served as a backup for the aging Davie Poplar that had stood on campus since before UNC opened in 1795. Today, the century-old tulip poplar tree still stands alongside the original Davie Poplar. (UNC.edu)
