Arizona Magnificent Trees Measuring Workshop

Event Description

Did you know that Arizona has a program honoring Magnificent Trees? The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management sponsors the Arizona Magnificent Tree Program designed to honor the largest trees of their species (Champion Trees); those with cultural significance (Heritage Trees); and those proven to be in place since Arizona Statehood in 1912 (Witness Trees).
Want to become a big tree hunter and volunteer for our program? Join us for a workshop on September 30th at the Arboretum at Flagstaff with Madeline Burton, the Urban Forestry Specialist from the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management. Madeline and her team facilitate the Magnificent Tree Program and seek volunteers interested in learning HOW to use forestry tools to measure the height, circumference, and crown width – the three variables required to calculate the tree scores for the Arizona Magnificent Tree Program. Afterwards we hope several participants will sign up for our Magnificent Tree Program “Measurement Verification Committee” to help us measure some of the trees needing to be reverified all across Arizona.
