Virginia Big Tree Program

Big trees are important to everyone. Not only do they provide useful information about natural history and forest ecology, but they add beauty to our landscape. The Virginia Big Tree Program offers recognition to this part of Virginia’s rich natural heritage.

The program relies on volunteers to search for, nominate, and verify the measurements of big trees in Virginia. When a big tree is reported to the program, it is put into the Virginia Big Tree Database maintained jointly by the Virginia Forestry Association, the Virginia Department of Forestry, and the Virginia Tech College of Natural Resources.
