Big Tree Contest

The Coshocton SWCD is sponsoring its annual “Big Tree Contest.”  This 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. 

All entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. on July 30, 2021.  Entries will be measured by a representative from the Coshocton SWCD using the national standardized measurement criteria.  The owners of the two “Big Trees” will each receive a plaque at Coshocton SWCD’s Annual Meeting & Banquet to be held October 21 at the Lake Park Pavilion. Entry forms are also available at the Coshocton SWCD office.
