Some Remarkable Trees Nominated

The Remarkable Trees of Virginia Project was a four-year effort to document the states' largest, oldest, most historic, beautiful and beloved trees. Citizens of all ages nominated over 1,000 trees to our project website, and over 100 were featured in the book, Remarkable Trees of Virginia.

The response to our book has been overwhelming! We are now in our fourth printing, and we were recently asked to include Washington, D.C. in our database. Thank you so much for all of the positive comments and suggestions.

Please continue to nominate trees and visit the website to see the inspiring words and pictures submitted by our nominators.

The following trees featured in the book have died since publication:

  • Tulip-poplar at Monticello
  • Tricycle tree in Ashland
  • Shagbark hickory in Lee County
  • Sassafras in Lee County
  • Baldcypress at Cypress Bridge is dead but still standing
  • Yellowwood at Kenmore in Fredericksburg
