I have been wanting to search out the state champion Tulip Tree for along time. Last Wednesday, I finally got the chance. My son and I went to Freehold to see some old churches and big trees. The Tulip Tree is in a wooded area in Freehold. In spite of there being a lot of trees in the area, when you see it , you know it. The tree is huge. It is exactly what you would want to see in a champion tree. The tree is healthy, has lost hardly any branches, has a big spread to it, has some height to it and the trunk is huge. It is one of the most impressive Tulip Trees that I have seen. If anybody is in that area, go search it out. You will not be disappointed. There are a lot of Tulip Trees in the Freehold area, but none quite like the champion.
