Bonus List

THREE STATES WITH NO NATIVE OAK TREES

The oak is one of the most common trees in the United States. At least 58 species are native somewhere in the country, especially in the eastern half and in parts of the Southwest. Only 3 states have no native oaks. Alaska has none because it's too cold, Hawaii has none because it's biologically isolated, and Idaho has none due to the dry, cold climate (though neighboring Montana, which is also a dry, cold climate, does barely contain the native range of the drought and cold hardy bur oak).

Texas is the only state that can claim more than half of the oak species in the US (because it has oaks from both the wetter Southeast and from the drier Southwest)...at least 31.
