Since 1940, the National Big Tree Program has been a testament to American Forests’ legacy of leadership in recognizing the beauty and critical ecosystem services provided by our biggest and oldest trees. More than 750 champions are crowned each year and documented in our biannual publication — the National Register of Big Trees.

For more than 70 years, the goal of the big tree program has remained: to preserve and promote the iconic stature of these living monarchs and to educate people about the key role that these remarkable trees and forests play in sustaining a healthy environment.
