Join the big tree hunt

Alamance County is home to giant trees that have, against all odds, survived centuries of storms, pests and development. These living monuments have cleaned our air, filtered our water and provided habitat for Piedmont wildlife over hundreds of years. From school grounds and city centers to backwoods and backyards, help us find, measure and celebrate the largest trees in Alamance County!
