Deadline approaching for 2013 Big Tree Contest

| July 17, 2013

COSHOCTON – Entries for the annual Big Tree Contest are now being taken. This contest is sponsored by the Coshocton Soil and Water Conservation District. It is open to all species of trees growing on privately owned property in Coshocton County. Property line trees and trees growing on federal, state, or local government owned land are not eligible. Any person can enter a tree physically located in Coshocton County whether or not the tree is growing on the nominator’s property.

Again in 2013, there will be two winning trees chosen. The Big Tree Contest is a county-wide contest, while the Coshocton Is Blooming category is limited to trees growing within the city of Coshocton. Coshocton SWCD encourages you to submit as many entries as you like for you or your neighbors’ trees. Entries will be measured by a representative from the Coshocton SWCD using the national standardized measurement criteria.

The owners of the 2013 Coshocton County Big Trees will each receive two complimentary banquet tickets and plaques at Coshocton SWCD’s 71st annual Meeting and Banquet to be held Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Career Center. Contact the SWCD office at 622-8087, ext. 4, visit, or stop by the office in the County Services Building on Seventh Street for an entry form or for more information.  All entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. Friday, July 26.
