Definition of tupelo:
wood (part of speech: noun)
- knotty pine,
The close similarity which exists between red and tupelo gum, together with the fact that tupelo is often cut along with red gum, and marketed with the sapwood of the latter, makes it not out of place to give consideration to this timber.- "Seasoning of Wood", Joseph B. Wagner.
Since it has become evident that the properties of the wood fit it for many uses, the demand for tupelo has largely increased, and it is now taking rank with other standard woods under its rightful name.- "Seasoning of Wood", Joseph B. Wagner.
- "The Cavalier", George Washington Cable.
