In search of big trees
- Published: July 30, 2010
It’s no a surprise that Yellow Springs has an abundance of large trees. This summer the Yellow Springs Tree Committee seeks the largest in their update to a 1972 report, “The big trees of Yellow Springs.”
Determining exactly where and how big the trees are is the mission of Tree Committee members Kathy Beverly and Macy Reynolds, who have been identifying and measuring village trees for the last several weeks.
The largest trees of their species will be submitted to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Forestry, which annually publishes a list of Ohio’s biggest trees. In 1972 three local trees were state finalists and one was a national champion.
Homeowners with large trees in their yard are encouraged to contact Kathy Beverly at email@example.com or 767-2586.
See the Aug. 5 print edition of the News for a full story on the large trees of Yellow Springs.
