Champion Native Trees of Martin County

Cocoplum has embarked on a project to collect data on the largest native trees and shrubs of Martin County with plans to create a data base. Volunteers from our chapter will measure nominated trees in honor of Florida's Arbor Day, in January .

Our first year (2013) sought nominations for five trees:  Sabal palmetto (Cabbage palm); Quercus virginiana (Live oak); Bursera simaruba (Gumbo limbo); Pinus elliottii var densa (So Fl Slash Pine); and Lignum-vitae. The  Champions will be on website.  Check back with us!
