Portage County Big Tree Contest

 Portage County brought back the Annual Big Tree Contest for the first time in many years in 2018. As a celebration of the competition returning to the county, we opened nominations to all species of trees to big the biggest of them all. In years to come nominations will be limited to one species of tree, in coordination with the Ohio Division of Forestry. Nominations are accepted in the spring of every year and will be measured by an SWCD employee. The top trees will be measured by a certified forester to determine the true winner. Big Tree winners will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to use for any of our sales or programs, and will have a plate placed on the official Portage County Big Tree Plaque displayed at the front of the office.
