State Seal Pine Tree
This ancient tree was already a monarch of the forest in 1778. Visible then from the Arlington home of Thomas Chittenden, first Governor of Vermont, it is believed to have inspired Ira Allen in designing Vermont's Great Seal. Note a similarity between the tree and its stylized portrayal in Seal atop this marker.
