Red Maple

Although the red maple was voted as the state tree by Rhode Island's school children in the 1890's, it was not officially recognized as the state tree until 1964. The red maple tree provides spectacular fall foliage - the leaves turning gold, purple, and scarlet (adding to the beauty of Rhode Island’s forests).
