Those of us who are from
Warren County, NJ truly understand why New Jersey is known as the "Garden State”.
And for locals, it’s no wonder that 8 of the Champion Trees in the Garden State
call Warren County their home.
What is a Champion Tree?
champion tree is the largest recorded tree of its species. Each state has its
own registry of champion trees. New Jersey has just over 100 Champion trees
currently documented. They are measured using AF Points (American Forest
Points) which take into account the trunk circumference, height, and average
crown spread of the tree.
