Species without champs.

The new rule that trees must be remeasured within 10 years to retain their titles has caused a lot of changes in this year's National Register of Big Trees. In fact, 100 of the 2006 champs lost their titles this year due to this new 10-year rule. Still more changes are afoot. AMERICAN FORESTS will be revising its list of eligible species for the 2009-2010 Register; those changes are not reflected in this edition of the Register. You can, however, view that revised list on our website (www.americanforests.org/resources/bigtrees) later this year. Because some of the species below may not be included on that list, you should be sure to check the online list against this one before you head out in search of Big Tree fame. Also on our website, you can download guidelines for measuring your potential champion as well as a list of what materials should be included with the nomination. You also will find contact information for your state coordinator and a link to your state's big tree register.
