Magnolia Tree

Mississippi adopted the magnolia as the official state tree in 1938. Mississippi's nickname is The Magnolia State and the magnolia is also the state flower of Mississippi.

Although no specific species of magnolia was designated as the state tree of Mississippi, most references recognize the Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) as the state tree.
