Champion Tree program

From FranaWiki

The Champion Tree program of the Arkansas Forestry Commission was created to identify the largest trees of each species in the state.

The trees are compared using the "Bigness Index" of the nonprofit organization American Forest. The Bigness Index incorporates several measurements, including the circumference of the trunk, total height, and crown spread. The formula for Bigness is circumference plus crown spread divided by four plus height.
