Deadline approaching for 2014 Big Tree Contest

| July 17, 2014

COSHOCTON – Entries for the annual Big Tree Contest can still be made through July 25. 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 2014, 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 2014 Coshocton County Big Trees will each receive two complimentary Banquet tickets and plaques at Coshocton SWCD’s 72nd annual Meeting and Banquet to be held Oct. 16, at the Career Center. Contact the SWCD office at 622-8087, ext. 4, visit www.coshoctonswcd.org, or stop by the office in the County Services Building on Seventh St. for an entry form or for more information. All entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. Friday, July 25.
