The 2020 edition of the Maine Register of Big Trees lists 146 champions located throughout the state. Join us to learn about these trees, and how they and other big trees play a significant role in our environment. State champion big trees capture people’s imagination for their size and strength, but there is more to a champion than just its size — they are symbols of all the good work trees do for the quality of the environment and our quality of life.
