The American Grove has launched its annual competition for the extraordinary tree that will represent the nation’s canopy as 2017's "Great American Tree." The competition theme this year is "trees that epitomize the meaning of summer," such as trees that provide cool summer shade, hold tire swings, or bring back summer memories.
Non-members are now able to vote for 2017's Great American Tree, however we do recommend you become part of American Grove online tree-loving community!

The first place winner will receive $500, second place is $250, and third place is $100. The winning tree will earn a feature on The American Grove homepage, along with a lasting legacy under the Great American Tree tab showing winners from previous years. Our national competition is in its third year.The 2016 Great American Tree was ‘The Largest Tree in Arkansas,’ a champion bald cypress.
