Atlanta’s Champion Trees
Seeking out Atlanta’s Champion Trees
Each year, Trees Atlanta publishes the list of Champion Trees in metro Atlanta. The compilation of the list is a labor of love lead by an amazing volunteer team. The list includes specimens located mainly inside I-285; all trees are nominated and identified by community members then reviewed by trained Champion Trees volunteers.
These trees represent some of the oldest, tallest, broadest, and most beautiful trees our city has to offer. These grand friends have witnessed the ever changing landscape of Atlanta and are part of our city’s iconic urban tree canopy.

Archive of past Atlanta’s Champion Tree lists
Trees Atlanta publishes a new list of the Champion Trees in metro Atlanta each year. The annual list is updated with new champions that are discovered and verified in the past year and as old champions disappear from the landscape. If you have a potential Champion Tree to nominate for review, please submit your nomination on the form on this page.
We offer a special thanks to expert volunteer Eli Dickerson for his leadership on the Atlanta Champion Trees project. He stands tall like a tulip poplar in our book!
Trees Atlanta’s Champion Tree program is a wholly volunteer run project. If you are interested in learning more about how to volunteer on this project, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
