When nominating a tree you will need to provide the scientific name of the tree you are nominating. See our “Links” page for on-line and printed tree identification resources.
It is helpful if you submit a written description of the tree and site it is growing on. Describe of any notable physical characteristics of the tree, such as a fire scar, insect or other damage, a pronounced lean, forked top, dead top, tree health or evidence of wildlife use such as nesting birds, etc. that are of interest and will help others identify the tree.
