Entries for the annual Big Tree Contest are now being taken by the Coshocton Soil and Water Conservation District.

The contest 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 any tree that is physically located in Coshocton County whether or not the tree is growing on the nominator’s property.

Two winning trees will be chosen this year. The big tree contest is county-wide, while the “Coshocton Is Blooming” category is limited to trees growing within the Coshocton city limits. Coshocton SWCD encourages you to submit as many entries as you like for you or your neighbors. Entries will be measured by a representative from Coshocton SWCD using the national standardized measurement criteria.

The owners of the winning big trees will each receive a plaque and two tickets to Coshocton SWCD’s annual meeting and banquet on Thursday, Oct. 21 at the Lake Park Pavilion. Contact the SWCD office at 740-622-8087 ext. 4, visit www.coshoctonswcd.org, or stop by the office in Room 120 of the County Services Building on Seventh Street for an entry form or more information. All entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 30.
