Legacy Tree Program

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Forest Health Program formally recognizes the largest known tree of each species growing in the state with The Massachusetts Legacy Tree Program. The state program is a complement of American Forests National Big Trees Program.

Anyone can nominate a big tree! DCR encourages submissions of trees on public or private land within Massachusetts. Residents should complete and submit the Legacy Tree Nomination Form. Field inspectors will verify the tree species and measurements.
