Alabama Champion Trees Highlighted
Ten trees have made the 2012 list of Alabama's Champion Trees, according to the Alabama Forestry Commission )AFC). With the addition of these new trees, the state now has 144 champions. This total decreased from last year because 17 of the 2011 champions had died by the time they were visited for their scheduled re-measurement, and three others were decertified.
