Champion Tree of Alamance County Contest

Alamance County is home to many wonderful, large trees with fascinating backstories. The Alamance Champion Tree Project celebrates these trees by finding, measuring and crowning the largest tree of its species, along with overall Grand Champions (not necessarily the largest of their species!) in three special categories:

  • Champion Tree: largest known tree in the county!

  • Historic Tree: a running list of trees that arguably hold the most historic significance. Must be at least fifty years old but don’t have to be the largest of their species.

  • Landmark Tree: a tree that commemorates a special occasion or holds significant value to an individual or group. Does not have to be the largest of its species.

The deadline to enter is November 4th and the winner will be announced November 12th. Happy Measuring!
