The Vermont State Tree

Sugar Maple Tree graphic No. 1 of the Acts of 1949, effective March 10, 1949, designated the Sugar Maple as the official State Tree. Probably no activity is so identified with Vermont as "sug'rin'," the production of maple syrup from the Sugar Maple. In late winter and early spring, sap is collected from the usually snow surrounded maple trees in a sugarbush and boiled in the sugarhouse to make syrup; in fact, Vermont has proclaimed "Maple" as in Maple Syrup, the official state flavor of the state.

In addition to the official state flavor of Vermont, the reds and yellows of the leaves of Acer saccharum are a key element in producing the scenic delights of Vermont's fall foliage.
