The Northeast section of the state of Oklahoma is often called Green Country. This area includes the city of Tulsa and the outlying areas towards the state lines of Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas. Some of the other cities and towns include Bartlesville, Broken Arrow Claremore, Jenks, Miami, Muskogee, Poteau, Sallisaw, Tahlequah, and Vinita.

Aptly named due to the increased plant life found in the area. The rainfall amounts in this section of the state are larger than the rest of the state. The name has been adopted by both the state and it's residents. Often when mentioning Tulsa or the surrounding areas people will simply say, "Up in Green Country".

Green Country is also home of the Delaware Tribe of Eastern Oklahoma, the Cherokee Nation, the Osage Tribe, and numerous other tribes.
