Great American Tree Competition

This year’s Great American Tree competition had some absolutely beautiful nominations, many of which exemplify this year's theme of unique fall color. Our top five trees with the most member votes were Bessemer City’s Cedar Tree, Largest Tree in Arkansas, White Oak of Wisconsin, Rancho Cucamonga’s Live Oak, and Ginkgo of Agnes Scott College.

Hampton Circle's Red Maple

Species: Acer rubrum

Size: 25 feet tall, 10” dbh

Location: Hampton Circle, Stow Ohio

Description: This red maple has the best fall color that I have ever seen for this species.  The color is so vibrant especially against the blue sky.  The tree was planted correctly and in the right spot, thus it will provide many more beautiful color shows in falls to come.
