Massachusetts Champion Tree List  pdf format of Massachusetts Champion Tree List

This database tracks the current Big Trees (champion trees) in our state using a point system.  The circumference is taken as well as the height and average spread of the crown to come up with the big tree points.  Within each species, the tree with the highest number of big tree points is considered the champion.


Participation is strongly encouraged. Simply download a nomination form.
