Each of the 50 states have
designated an Official "State Tree." All of the state
trees, except the Hawaii's state tree, are native to the
state in which they are designated. Some of the Latin
names you see here may be different from those you may
have seen before due to changes in plant nomenclature;
we have chosen to list the current valid botanical name.
Where more than one accepted common name exists, the
common name in the legislation has been listed.
Many of the Official State Tree Designations of the 50
States listed here can be found in the U.S. National
Arboretum's "National Grove of State Trees." However,
because the climate in Washington doesn't allow the
growth of all of the state trees, trees have been
substituted for some of the states.
