Celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2015, 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 and documented in our annual American Forests Champion Trees national register.

Since 1940, the goal of the program has remained: to preserve and promote the iconic stature of these living monarchs and educate people about the key role that these remarkable trees and forests play in sustaining a healthy environment.
