Billings Big Tree Program
Billings has some amazing trees. The Billings Big tree program is a way to celebrate trees. Several Billings trees are State champions.
Anyone can nominate a tree for the Billings Big Tree Program. To nominate a Big tree in Billings please provide as many measurements of the tree as possible with pictures if available to email@example.com.
For a tree to be considered a Big Tree it must attain a point score that is higher than the previous held record. Points are given for tree height in feet, circumference in inches, and 1/4 average crown spread (crown spread should be taken at the widest spread and at the narrowest spread) .
Example: Tree Height= 78 ft + circumference = 128″ + (average crown spread= 64ft /4)= 16 ft= 222 total points
