Which tree has been chosen by your state to be its official state tree? The practice of declaring a state tree began back in 1919 when Texas selected the pecan tree to represent their state. Since then all 50 U.S. states have chosen a tree that best represents their state, with more than a third of the states choosing a pine or oak tree. The team at Alan’s Factory Outlet created a map of the United States made up of images of all of the state trees. This guide expands further on each type of tree, sharing information about the tree, such as its average height, life span, if the population is increasing or decreasing, as well as if the tree is currently endangered or near threatened. It’s no surprise to see that California chose the massive California Redwood for its state tree, although it is alarming to see that these remarkable trees are on the endangered list with its population decreasing in part due to the many forest fires that have been devastating California. Which other notable trees can you spot on this guide to the state trees of America?
