Wisconsin State Tree: Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum)

The Wisconsin State Tree is the Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum).

Wisconsin State Tree - Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum) - A favorite state tree was first selected by a vote of Wisconsin school children in 1893. The maple tree won, followed by oak, pine, and elm. Another vote was conducted in 1948 among school children by the Youth Centennial Committee. In that election, the sugar maple again received the most votes, followed by white pine and birch. But, it wasn't until the Chapter 218, Laws of 1949 that the sugar maple became the offical state tree.
