Big Tree Project

Do you know of any impressive trees in Jefferson County? Contact Sue Gwise and we will arrange to evaluate and photograph the tree. We are looking for trees that are notable either in height, spread, or trunk diameter.

The largest tree we have measured so far is a northern red oak in the Sackets Harbor Military Cemetery. It has a trunk circumference of over 20 feet!
