Have a Big Tree? Make it Official

July 1, 2024 – Do you have a big tree? Make it official and you could garner braggin rights when you register it with Texas A&M.

The Texas Big Tree Registry, a service of the Texas A&M Forestry Service, is an online database of exceptionally large specimens growing in the State of Texas.

The Texas Big Tree Registry recognizes the largest known tree of each species growing in the state. In some cases, these trees could be the largest in the country! 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. Champion trees can be located on public or private property. We work with tree owners to preserve these trees for future generations to enjoy.

Did you know the State’s largest Chalk maple is on the Stephen F. Austin State University Campus? It and all the other state champions are in the database. You can visit that database here.
