Nominations accepted through July 31

June 18, 2018 - ​The City of Ann Arbor is pleased to announce the opening of nominations for the Champion Tree program this summer. The Champion Tree program identifies and catalogs the largest tree of each species within the city and then publishes the results within a searchable online map. If you believe your tree to be one of the biggest and best of its species, please visit to fill out a nomination form. ​

Forestry staff will then evaluate tree nominations and will notify residents if their tree is selected. Both public and private trees may be nominated. Nominations will be accepted through July 31, 2018.  Nominations received after July 31 will be evaluated for inclusion in the 2019 Champion Tree list.
