The Natural Resources Stewards Program hosts the Big Tree Team where volunteers help identify, measure, and record these big trees at the state, county and national levels. NH’s Big Tree Program, started in 1950, recognizes and records the state’s biggest champions. From the “William Whipple” horse chestnut in Portsmouth to a black spruce bog in the North Country, dedicated volunteers search the state for the largest examples of individual trees species that grow in New Hampshire.
