As an Environmental Weed Issue
The African tulip tree is native to tropical Africa. It is popular as an ornamental garden tree or street tree in tropical and subtropical parts of Queensland, due to its showy red tulip shaped flowers. African tulip trees are a serious environmental weed in north Queensland, where they are highly invasive, and form dense stands in gullies and along streams, crowding out native vegetation.
