Alabama Champion Tree
We have a large Mountain Chestnut Oak on our property that was recently certified an Alabama Champion Tree. I think there are others out there somewhere that may be larger but at this time it is certified as the largest mountain chestnut oak on record in Alabama.
Anyone may contact the Alabama Forestry Commission in their county about a tree of any species that they feel is the largest of its kind and have it checked. You may look at http://www.forestry.alabama.gov/PDFs/ChampionTrees.pdf to see the trees that are now on record as being a champion tree and what measurements made it the champion. The Alabama Forestry Commission website has more information about this program.
