Illinois State Tree: White Oak
The adjective seems to attach itself to everything from pizza, hot dogs and blues to architecture and political machines. No matter what the subject, Chicagoans seem to do things with their own distinctive flair, creating innovations that resound far beyond the city's borders.
However, it's no simple matter to define precisely what Chicago's style is. This large and diverse city is many things at once -- a blue-collar town that's full of high culture and gracious living; a town of historical importance that's in no way stuck in the past; a classic Midwestern city with international importance and an international population. Ultimately, Chicago's refusal to conform to any single style, even one that bears its name, is what truly defines this city.
When this tree was voted on by schoolchildren in 1907 they did not specify which oak (there are approximately 20 species in Illinois) so in 1973 the law had to be amended to name the white oak as the official tree. This tree is a very large tree. It is common for it to achieve a height of 100 feet (30 meters). In 1973, according to the Chicago Illinois Blue Book (1983-1984 and 1993-1994) 900,000 children were polled to change the official state tree. The white oak received 333,964 votes.
