BIG Trees!

Big Tree logoBig Trees Mount Holly Help us find the Champion TREES in Mount Holly!

WHAT:   The Big Tree program goal is to branch into the Mount Holly community to engage & promote the worth, both historically and environmentally, of trees. These trees will root the community and connect  them to their nearby nature.  A historical timeline will be developed providing a sense of place and pride in 22 environmental tree benefits.  Want to estimate what a tree does for you?

TO DO:  Find the Big Trees! We will

  • Ask the property owner for permission to evaluate the tree.
  • Measure the trunk (circumference), Height, and canopy (crown spread)
  • Determine the species
  • Calculate the age based on the growth factor
  • Record the coordinates
  • Photograph the tree and record distinguishing characteristics
  • Report the age to the Mount Holly Historic Society for a historical time line.
  • Consider any tree larger than 9″ inches for submission to the NC Champion Tree Database.
