1. Locate the oldest, largest, or most noteworthy tree in your immediate environment or in your travels. Several good resources for this are The National Register of Big Trees, your
local state registry of big trees, (both published by American Forests), or many other resources that are commonly available such as
Sacred Trees,a Sierra Club book which describes many existing extraordinary trees throughout the world.
2. Document your tree with any medium you like: photography, drawing, painting, or computer graphics & multimedia, etc.
3. Identify the tree with its common and Latin name and provide some descriptive text about the tree, giving your personal reaction, the exact location, approximate age, and any local history you can gather, and the tree's circumference, 54" from the ground.
Please remember to label your artwork with title, medium, and size.
