Champion trees



The goal of the Prince George’s County Big Tree Program is to identify, measure, and catalog the largest trees of each species within the county lines.Nominees though this program will be submitted and compared to specimens of the Maryland Big Tree Program. The trees are scored on Total Points = circumference (in inches) + height (in feet) + 25% of the average crown spread. This leads to fair comparison amongst trees.

Specimens currently listed as County Champion Trees: Currently, there are 19 of the UMD – College Park trees listed as Prince George County, Maryland Champion Trees. Prepared By: Maryland – National Capital Park and Planning Commission (2011 Edition)
