Background

The primary purpose of the register is to locate, document and compile a record of all of the significant trees across Georgia.  The register will also enhance our ability to educate and encourage the public and decision-makers about the importance of trees and the need to care for and protect them.

If you go to the map, clicking on a tree will give you some information about it, as well as a picture of the tree.  To view the trees in list form, go to tree list.
