Happy Earth Day

The eastern white pine (pinus strobus) is Michigan's state tree. It was also known as The Tree of Peace in the Iroquois culture. The white pine is the largest tree in eastern North America.

White pine forests originally covered much of northeastern North America, though only one percent of the original trees remain untouched by extensive logging operations operating from the 18th century into the early 20th century.

What's your state tree?
