The entry deadline has passed for the  2017 Big Tree Contest, but mark your calendar for next year! Entry forms will be available by May 1st, 2018. The entries for this year’s contest will be measured soon, and the nominators will be notified about how their tree scored. The two winners will be recognized at this year’s Annual Meeting on October 19. 

The Big Tree Contest is open to all species of trees growing on privately owned property in Coshocton County. Property line trees and trees growing on federal, state, or local government land are not eligible. Any person can enter a tree physically located in Coshocton County whether or not the tree is growing on the nominator’s property. The Big Tree Contest is a county-wide contest, while the “Coshocton Is Blooming” category is limited to trees growing within the City of Coshocton. Coshocton SWCD encourages you to submit as many entries as you like for you and your neighbors.
