State Bird Flower Tree
North Carolina Northern Cardinal Dogwood Pine

North Carolina cherishes the Northern Cardinal as its state bird, celebrated for its striking red plumage and enchanting songs that resonate through the state's woodlands. Adding to North Carolina's natural allure is the Dogwood, the state flower, symbolizing resilience and grace in its delicate blooms. Towering over the landscape is the majestic Longleaf Pine, a tree species that has thrived for centuries in North Carolina's forests, representing strength, longevity, and a deep connection to the state's history.
