The Washington County Forestry Board is searching for the biggest American beech tree in Washington County.
Do you have a possible champion in your yard or on your farm or know someone who does?
American beech grows in a variety of places and is a common component of the forests of this region, the Forestry Board said in a press release.
The Forestry Board will submit measurements of the largest local beech for inclusion in the Maryland register.
And, the owners of the local winner are to receive a plaque commemorating their American beech as the biggest in Washington County.
Entry deadline for the contest is Oct. 1.
