    Amongst the 865 tree species in the United States, the most common tree is the red maple. Covering mass amounts of ground from the eastern border of Canada to the southern tip of Florida, these deciduous trees are able to flourish in the eastern U.S. One reason they are so common is that they are a very tolerant species and can grow in many conditions. The next most common tree is the loblolly pine. This conifer tree is also very dominant on the eastern third of the U.S. but most specifically the south-eastern states. To round out the top five most common trees, third place goes to sweetgum, then Douglas fir takes fourth, and the quaking aspen is in fifth place.
