Photographic Tour of Midcoast Maine’s Champion Trees
October 17, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Jan Santerre, coordinator of Project Canopy and Maine’s Big Tree Program, will offer a slide-show presentation of the biggest trees in the midcoast region. “Big trees,” Jan points out, “capture people’s imaginations through their size, beauty, and the stories they tell.” Maine’s register of big trees recognizes the biggest native and naturalized tree species in the state. Champion trees for each species are based on a scoring formula that accounts for its trunk circumference, height, and crown spread. Maine’s Register of Big Trees is part of Project Canopy, a cooperative effort of the Maine Forest Service and GrowSmart Maine.
This is event is co-sponsored by the Rockland Public Library.
