Well seeing as he is the Governor of "The Evergreen State" I would of figured he turned into a fir.

I thought it was funny, but I can give you a couple checks. No naturally occurring White Oaks in Washington State, especially not in the ONP rainforest - an ancient Western Red Cedar or Doug Fir would've worked. Also, although we have fireflies, sadly, they aren't the glowy kind.

My favorite part of this thread is everyone checking in with more accurate tree facts. Team Conifer for sure.

If you're team conifer, does that mean you are taking "Evergreen Economy" literally?

With the number of dwarf conifers I’ve bought and planted in the past 2 years? Absolutely.

The Onion is one of the few good things you can find in this endless clusterfuck.

Reminds me of the episode of Dinosaurs where Earl Sinclair turned into a tree.

The Onion was almost correct in its description of the tree. Precisely, the oak native to Washington is the Oregon White Oak (Oregon oak), or Quercus garryana (known as the Garry Oak in Canada). It is Washington's only native oak species.

But are there any in ONP? Didn't they mostly grow on what used to be prairie - ie SW Washington. He probably would be a Doug Fir or Cedar.

At the risk of this thread sounding like "The Lumberjack Song" from Monty Python, The Onion should have used our state tree, the Western Hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla), for Inslee.
