What a beauty.  We still have a few scattered big ones in Ohio but they are rare as hen's teeth and tend to disappear abruptly.

Yeah I'm usually disappointed by Champs because they are doubles.

Jimmy,

How do you find an exact location for a champion tree in Minnesota?  They list county and city, but that is it.  Iowa does a much nicer job with there spreadsheet....http://www.iowadnr.gov/Portals/idnr/uploads/forestry/Big%20Trees%20of%20Iowa%20Web-ready.pdf

I found this one because it was in Minneapolis.  The city of Minneapolis has a heritage tree program linked to google maps that is very nice.  I wish the state had the same but you can email the state coordinator and they should be able to give you directions to most trees.
