Alaska State Register of Big Trees
is subsidiary to and an offshoot of AMERICAN FORESTS National Register of Big Trees.http://www.americanforests.org/resources/bigtrees/shapeimage_1_link_0
 
 
The Alaska Big Tree List has prior listings going back to the 1950s.  All but a few can’t be verified and will be replaced with new nominations.  Candidates will be selected each September for the following year.  All species records will be retained until bested by subsequent year’s nominations.
Species without National Champs
If Alaskan Big Tree List entries are competitive with National Register listings, they will be nominated to the National Register for remeasurement and consideration.
