Why do you think Maine is called the "Pine Tree State?" What other animals and plants represent Maine? Do you think the "Pine Tree State" is a good nickname for Maine, or would you choose something else? Why?

The pine tree and moose, Maine's State Tree and State Animal, are represented in the Maine State Seal. This seal was made for the Third Maine Regiment (armed forces) around 1828, not long after Maine became a state.
