The National Big Tree Program

The National Big Tree Program

Amy: Posted on Monday, February 09, 2015 2:50 PM

The National Big Tree Program began with an article in the September 1940 issue of American Forests magazine, it asked for readers to search for Americas largest trees. Joseph Sterns, a concerned forester wrote the article called "Let’s Find and Save the Biggest Trees" requesting readers to not look at the obvious but find the giants standing quietly in the forests and on virgin lands.

American Forests has maintained the National Register of Big Trees since that date. The Big Tree Program is active in all 50 states and Washington DC and is used as a model for several Big Tree programs around the world. The National Big Tree Program has been promoting the same message for over 70 years: regardless of size, all trees are champions of the environment.

 

Important milestones for the National Big Tree Program:

1940 – The first tree is nominated: a Chestnut Oak in Suffield, Connecticut.

1941 – The American Big Trees Report is launched with a total of 77 champions.

1961 – The program name is changed to the Social Register of Big Trees.

1969 – The first Hawaiian edition of the register is published.

1978 – The publication changes its name to the National Register of Big Trees.

2010 – The National Register of Big Trees launches the first online publication of register.
