TR Robertson — All 50 states have designated a tree as their Official State Tree. All of the trees for each state are native to that state and grow in the state they are designated except Hawaii’s state tree, the Kukui Nut Tree or Candlenut Tree. Polynesians brought seeds for this tree to the Hawaiian Islands when they settled the islands. The first states to designate an official tree were Pennsylvania in 1931 when they designated the Eastern Hemlock as their Official Tree and that same year Indiana followed by designating the Tulip Tree as their Official State Tree. California and Nevada have designated 2 species of trees as their Official State Tree. For California the Coast Redwood and the Giant Sequoia and for Nevada the Single-leaf Pinyon and the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine. Washington, D.C. has also designated a tree. Under President George W. Bush, in 2004, the National Arbor Day Foundation hosted a poll and designated the Oak Tree as the Official Tree of the United States. The longest living tree is the Great Basin Bristle-Cone Pine called Methuselah, found in the White Mountains of California. This tree is said to be 4,848 years old. There is another Great Basin Bristle-Cone Pine in the same area that might be over 5,000 years old. There is also a Yew Tree in Wales that is over 4,000 years old and a Ginkgo Biloba Tree in China almost 4,000 years old.
