Where Are The Biggest Trees In Wisconsin? They’re Enormous!
Wisconsin has a lot of trees, and some of them get pretty big. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources documents these trees as part of their Champion Trees program.
One of the trees that comes in the tallest is located in Forest County, Wisconsin. It's near the Michigan border off Huff Creek Road. This Easter White Pine is 157 feet tall.
This tree has a score of 325.75. The score on the trees is based on the formula:
Tree Circumference (in) + Height (ft) + 1/4 Average Crown Spread Diameter (ft)
The Champion Trees are the biggest of each species of tree in the state. Most of the trees are on state land, but some are found on private land. Like this huge Elm tree.
It's 118 feet tall and located near Milwaukee in Waukesha County. It has a very wide spread on its crown, helping it achieve a score of 346.75. It's the biggest tree on private land in Wisconsin.
What's the highest-scoring tree in Wisconsin? This one is a true beast. It's a Black Willow in Milwaukee County. It's 108 feet tall, but its massive width, crown, and circumference give it a score of 473.75. That makes it the biggest tree in the state.
It has a very interesting base and is located just off a walkway.
Here's another huge tree. This one is the second largest in the state. It's located in Door County. It's an Eastern Cottonwood that's 108 feet tall. Look at this monster!
