The Chesapeake Bay watershed is home to many of North America’s most iconic trees. Native conifers and deciduous trees are found throughout the estuary from its headwaters in New York to the edges of the bay along its entire shoreline.

Native tree species include Atlantic white cedar, eastern red cedar, loblolly pine, bald cypress, American holly, American beech, American sycamore, black walnut, river birch, sassafras, persimmon, magnolias, cherries, hickories, oaks, ashes, and many others.
