Seeking the Remarkable Trees of Virginia


, : Seeking the Remarkable Trees of Virginia. American Forests 112(4 Winter 2007): 9

A statewide search has been launched to find the 100 most remarkable tress in Virginia. Established in 2005, the Trees Project aims to involve the public in finding the state's most impressive trees in terms of size, beauty, age, uniqueness, historical significance, or importance to the community. The effort was devised by tree enthusiast and writer/photographer Nancy Ross Hugo and Jeff Kirwan, Extension specialist and forestry professor at Virginia Tech and American Forests' Big Tree coordinator for Virginia. The final outcome will be a Web site of all the nominated trees and a book that celebrates the top 100, photographed by Robert Llewellyn and set for publication in spring 2008. Before that, Hugo and Kirwan want the public to enjoy an educational and historic process that celebrates community resources.
