Back by Popular Demand! We are the Champions!

Jamestown Golf Course, Upstairs

There are 123 crowned species champions in our state according to the RI Tree Council’s Big Tree Registry. Out of this total, the council has selected six that stand head and shoulders above the rest. In this lecture John Campanini will share with you the notable qualities that have earned them the highest mark of distinction, THE BEST OF BREED. We believe this presentation will not only change your appreciation for all trees but also, the way you look at your next one!
