Champion and Notable Tree Program

Trees for Augusta, Inc. has begun a list and photographs of important trees in Augusta-Richmond County and western Aiken County.

Please use the  nomination form at the bottom to make submissions to this important list.

Trees for Augusta will post submissions on this website and use these examples to promote and advocate the importance of trees in the Augusta community.

Champion trees are defined as the largest of its kind in the area. Please submit nominations and Trees for Augusta will measure nominations. This champion tree program is similar to the one which the Georgia Forestry Commission has conducted for many years. But instead of State of Georgia champion trees, we are focused on the largest trees in Richmond and western Aiken counties.

 

Notable trees is a much more inclusive category. Our definition is any tree which is unique in its physical features, history or relationship to a neighborhood. This could mean almost any tree you pass by every day, including important trees in your own backyard or neighborhood.

 

Trees for Augusta will choose trees, from time to time, from this list to publish on the website as a featured tree.
