The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department along with the Urban Forestry Tree Board are excited to announce a Largest Tree Contest as part of the City's 2018 Arbor Day Celebration.  Submissions for the contest begin today and end on Arbor Day, April 22, 2018.  Parks, Recreation & Forestry staff will verify all submissions & tree measurements and the locations will be published, so that everyone can check out the largest trees in our City!

The rules regarding the contest are as follows:

  • The tree must be on City property (on a boulevard or in a park). 
  • The submission form must be filled out completely with accurate measurements and a photo of the tree must be included. 
  • Submissions will be accepted on a  first come/first served basis, i.e. if more than one individual submits the same tree, the first person to submit the form first has rights to that submission.
  • The contest is open to City of Superior residents only.
  • Submissions must be received by April 22, 2018.

The winner will be recognized and will receive a small prize at our Arbor Day Celebration, which will be scheduled at a date to be determined in May,
