There are a lot of different kinds of trees in the US that we haven't driven to extinction yet. The Oak, one of these uneradicateable weeds, has been designated by act of Congress as the National Tree of the US. This is a wise choice in my opinion. My living room floor is covered with a beautiful parquet of old growth White Oak and looks fabulous. Given the recent trend on GD of allowing other countries' symbols to be spoken of in the same breath with those of the US, I thought I would open this up to the board. Can you think of a National Tree of some other two bit foreign country better than that of my dear beloved home?
