Each year, we identify the largest, oldest, and most spectacular of each of America’s native and naturalized tree species. Our Champion Trees have value beyond their impressive size — they are critical to our health and the survival of our planet. Older trees ingest exponentially more carbon and filter more water, making them Champions in the battle against climate change.
