Contest to find state’s biggest trees

NORTHEAST MICHIGAN –  ReLeaf Michigan, a non-profit tree planting and education organization, is celebrating Michigan trees with its 14th Michigan Big Tree Hunt Contest. This free contest runs now through September 3, 2019 and is open to participants of all ages.

Join Michiganders across all 83 counties to hunt for the largest trees in the state.  Big trees can be found anywhere: a backyard, a local park, or a hiking trail. When the contest closes certificates and prizes will be awarded for the largest tree submitted from each Michigan County, the largest tree found by a youth hunter (15 and younger) and adult hunter (16 and older), the largest Eastern White Pine found in the state and for potential state champion trees. To enter your big tree, visit www.bigtreehunt.com for an online entry form or for information on where to find a paper entry form.

ReLeaf Michigan started the Michigan Big Tree Hunt in 1993 to celebrate our state’s beauty and gather information about Michigan’s biggest trees. Contest entries provide potential state champion trees to Michigan’s Big Tree Registry as well as the National Register of Big Trees.  Since Michigan champion trees die or may be removed, contest entries are a wonderful opportunity for all age groups to help track these vital, historical, living landmarks.

More contest details available online at www.bigtreehunt.com.  If you have a question not answered on the website, email ledwards@ReLeafMichigan.org or call (800) 642-7353. 

ReLeaf Michigan’s Big Tree Hunt contest is sponsored by the Arboriculture Society of Michigan, Consumers Energy Foundation, the DTE Energy Foundation, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources – Urban and Community Forestry Program and supported in partnership by the Huron-Clinton Metroparks and the Michigan Botanical Club.
