STATE TREES

state trees - pine trees - deciduous trees - evergreens

All state trees except Hawaii are native to the state in which they are designated. Some Latin names here may be different than seen before due to changes in plant nomenclature (current valid botanical name is listed). When more than one accepted common name exists, the common name used in the legislation has been listed.

*(1) California has designated two distinct species as its state tree.
*(2) Although Iowa did not designate a specific species of oak as its state tree, many people recognize bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa) as the state tree since it is the most widespread species in the state.
*(3) Although no specific species of magnolia was designated as the state tree of Mississippi, most references recognize the Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) as the state tree.
