Atlanta’s Champion Trees
Seeking out Atlanta’s Champion Trees
Each year, Trees Atlanta teams with its Atlanta Arbor Day partners to search for the finest trees. The Atlanta Arbor Day team reviews qualifying nominees, and a certified arborist conducts measurements on all finalists. These trees represent some of the oldest, heartiest, and most beautiful trees our city has to offer.
Have you ever seen the beautiful red maple on McClendon Avenue across from Lake Claire Park? What about the glorious White Oak at the Bitsy Grant Tennis Center on Northside Drive? Or perhaps you have visited the beautiful Sourwood in Cascade Heights. These are just a few examples of Atlanta’s Champion Trees, the largest of each tree species located inside I-285.
