How Big Are Your Trees?

Tape Measure tree

The Niskayuna Tree Council is looking for the biggest trees in Niskayuna with the launch of the Great Tree Hunt. Don’t be shy to send in the biggest candidate in your yard or common area or measure a tree from your favorite park. Even if it’s not the most enormous – you never know! There are lots of different categories for different kinds of trees and it’s good to get outside and appreciate the giants (or semi-giants / or little sprouts) that are thriving all around you. We would love to see a picture of your big tree and include it in the Great Tree Hunt.
