Feb. 17, 2011 – Virginia is once again well represented in the National Register of Big Trees, published every two years by American Forests. Virginia ranks in the top five states, with 68 national champion trees. 

Virginia’s biggest tree, a 12.5-foot-diameter water tupelo in Greensville County, is a new national champ, replacing a smaller one in Isle of Wight County. Virginia’s smallest national champ is a four-inch stewartia growing in Chesapeake. Notable additions this year include a new national champion rock elm at Roanoke College and this willow oak in Chesapeake.
