Let’s go see trees this weekend! Not just any trees, but “big trees,” “champion trees,” measured and certified by the Washington State Big Tree Program. Tracking down champion trees is like a treasure hunt—and you can learn something in the process. Take along a field guide to make sure that the big tree you have found is truly the right species and learn how to identify Washington’s most common native trees.
