Remarkable Trees of Virginia project seeks tree nominations
Virginia Tech forestry professor and extension specialist Jeffrey Kirwan and outdoor author/lecturer Nancy Ross Hugo are on a two-year search to find Virginia's special trees. "We're asking citizens to search their communities and natural areas for trees that are remarkable because of age, size, beauty, uniqueness, connection to the community, or historical and cultural significance," Kirwan said. "We're searching for trees that have unusual forms or interesting stories associated with them."
