Entries sought for Big Tree Contest

| June 20, 2017

COSHOCTON COUNTY – 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.

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 limits 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 two “Big Trees” will each receive a plaque and two tickets to Coshocton SWCD’s Annual Meeting and Banquet on Oct. 19 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 at the County Services Building on 7th Street for an entry form or more information. All entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 28.
