The Georgia Forestry Commission has named the Hank Aaron Oak Tree in Connally Nature Park as a state Co-Champion Tree through Georgia’s Champion Tree Program. A champion tree is defined as the largest known tree of a particular species. We share the title with a similar tree in Alpharetta. Here are the dimensions:
Circumference= 200 inches
Height= 168 feet
Crown Spread= 120 feet
Total Points= 398
A special thanks to Dominic Maldanado (GIS Coordinator), Andre Moore (Homeland Security Manager), and Greg Hart (Parks Administrator) for assisting the City in receiving this honor.
