Big Tree Registry

    Texas Big Tree Registry

    Do you know or have visited the largest known specimens of each tree species growing in Texas? In some cases, these trees could be the largest in the country! Texas A&M Forest Service developed the Big Tree Registry website which displays tree measurements and photos as well as public tree locations. It also features a map that displays both the state and national champions. Big trees also have big values. Compared to younger, smaller trees, big trees provide greater ecosystem services such as carbon storage, water and air filtration.

    The three inset state champions (from left to right) are Afghanistan pine, sugarberry (sugar hackberry) and Texas redbud. Learn more at https://texasforestinfo.tamu.edu/BigTreeRegistry/
