Ehrle Michigan Big Tree Coordinator Dept. of Biological Sciences Western Michigan University Kalamazoo, MI 49008 woodyehrle5098@sbcglobal.net ABSTRACT The history and development of Michigan's Big Tree and Shrub Program is described. Specifications are given on how to measure and report potential champion-sized trees and shrubs. A list of 678 individual trees and shrubs is presented along with their measurements and locations. State and current and former National Champions are designated. An additional list sorted by counties is presented. Some of these trees and shrubs haven't been re-measured for many years. Readers are urged to become active in visiting and re-measuring them. INTRODUCTION This paper presents a revision and expansion of "The Champion Trees and Shrubs of Michigan," published in The Michigan Botanist (vol. 42, #1, pp 3-46) in 2003. Many changes have occurred in the lists of Champion Trees and Shrubs since that paper was published. Additional species have been included, new champions have been found, and, regrettably, some of our fine former champions have been lost to ice and wind storms, lightning strikes, road commissions, and development. The 2003 list contained 81 genera, 217 species and varieties, and 252 items. The list presented herein contains 86 genera, 298 species and varieties, and 678 items. The additional species and varieties are largely the result of Robert Bloye's study of the trees of the Michigan State University campus in East Lansing, Stu Bassett's studies at the Kellogg Biological Station near Gull Lake in Kalamazoo County, Jeff Boddy's studies at Leila Arboretum in Battle Creek in Calhoun County, along with those of Richard Pomorsky, Gail McPherson and others who contributed to the annual Big Tree Hunt sponsored by Global ReLeaf of Michigan. Since 2003, the author has measured 49 champion and sub-champion trees, all of which are included here, plus many others that were too small to be included. Much of the material in the next several paragraphs has appeared in The Michigan Botanist in earlier versions of this paper. They are repeated here, and in some cases expanded, so as to be available to Michigan Botanical Club members and others who take this paper into the field when searching for big trees and shrubs. Reducing all this to a literature citation wouldn't be of much use to them when they are in the field.

Page  66 ï~~66 THE MICHIGAN BOTANIST Vol. 45 The very large increase in the total number of items is due to the decision to include most of the "Michigan Big Tree and Shrub Inventory." This list of 953 trees first put together in 1997 was not published previously because the database on which it was built contained too many errors. In the intervening years, I have culled many of these and deleted some data from old records. Trees reported in many of the old records most likely no longer exist. Errors certainly remain in this larger list. Data were available on 1132 trees, but 445 have been excluded. I entrust this list to the members of the Michigan Botanical Club to make additional corrections, additions, and deletions over time. American Forests is also taking steps to "clean up" the National Register of Big Trees. Eventually, they want to exclude all National Champions that haven't been re-measured in the last ten years. They are beginning by asking for re-measurement of all National Champions that haven't been re-measured since 1980. This will be an ongoing challenge for Michigan since we have over 50 National Champions on their list. Many of these have not been visited or re-measured in the last ten years. Anyone willing to help with this work is urged to contact me for whatever locational data I might have. Whenever possible, GPS data have been recorded for trees measured during the last few years. The GPS coordinates should enable anyone with a GPS unit to locate these trees anywhere in the state within 30 feet. American Forests has published the National Register of Big Trees since the 1940s with the support of the Davey Tree Expert Company and State Coordinators in each of the states. As American Forests is organized the big tree work comes under the Global ReLeaf part of the organization. Its purposes are to raise awareness of the importance of trees in our lives, raise funds to plant trees in many parts of the planet, including Michigan, and record just how big some of our woody species can get to be. Global ReLeaf has also recently produced software through which a community can analyze the percent tree cover in both towns and rural areas. Some woody species get to be very large under the forces of genetics and natural selection. All plants that share ecosystems are competing for light, water, nutrition and space. There are winners and losers in this competition. Besides genetics and natural selection some members of a species get to be very large and others don't due to the vagaries of logging, slope, location, fire and drought. The best information on how large a species can get to be is contained in the National Register of Big Trees and state reports such as the one published here. Every year still bigger examples are found and previous champions are lost. To keep up with these changes, the National Register of Big Trees is published every two years, the Michigan list every three years in recent times. The Big Tree Program of the Michigan Botanical Club started soon after the organization of the club in 1941. Paul Thompson, affiliated with the Cranbrook Institute of Sciences, became the state's Big Tree Coordinator and served in that capacity for over forty years until his death in 1994. Many individuals, mostly Michigan Botanical Club members, worked with Paul over the years as he set about discovering, measuring, and recording Michigan's biggest trees and shrubs. Champion size trees were reported to American Forests, nominated for National Champion status, and subsequently listed in the National

Page  67 ï~~2006 THE MICHIGAN BOTANIST 67 Register of Big Trees, issued every two years by American Forests. The Michigan list of State Champions continues to evolve and expand. For an earlier record which will facilitate comparison with the current list see Thompson (1975 and 1986). I began my work with Paul Thompson in 1991. We had decided to prepare a series of short articles for publication in The Michigan Botanist. Paul described trees he thought I could find, gave me careful directions to their locations, and I began a new set of measurements. About two dozen trees had been located and re-measured before his death in 1994. The series of articles in The Michigan Botanist has continued to grow. As of the October, 2005 issue, 49 have been published and another sixteen have been submitted. These articles are described in the next section of this paper and listed in Table 1. Paul Thompson had an amazing ability to recall instantly a great many details about each champion tree or shrub and its location. He enjoyed telling me whether the approach road was paved or gravel, whether the farmhouse the tree stood beside had bay windows or not, and, oh yes, "There is a woodpecker hole on the northeast side of the trunk." When I learned of his death, I feared that all of this had been lost. Much of it has been, of course, but not all. Through the kindness of his family and the efforts of friends, George and Kathleen Thomson (no relation to Paul), his meticulous and voluminous notes were preserved. The notes contained information on 3734 individual trees and shrubs in Michigan. In some cases, the measurements were exact and the locations were precise. In other cases, measurements were approximations and locations were described only in cryptic hints. Sorting through Paul Thompson's records took 2% years. That work resulted in The Michigan Botanist series of articles, and the 1997 paper updating Paul's 1994 list of champions, published as Ehrle (1997). Based on Paul Thompson's records, the four or five largest of each species were entered into a computer database known as the "Michigan Big Tree and Shrub Inventory." The 227 items in the 1997 list of champions were subsets extracted from the larger database. The database has been updated periodically. The most recent update provided the information for this paper. Native and non-native species have been included in the Michigan lists from the beginning of the big tree work in the state in order to make the lists as inclusive as possible. The National Register of Big Trees includes native and "naturalized" species with the definition of naturalized continuing to evolve over time. Then again, they include the Giant Saguaro Cactus as a "tree or shrub" which perplexes some non-desert people. Paul Thompson and the people who worked with him discovered many of the champions and sub-champions included in the database. Through their efforts, at one time Michigan had more recorded National Champions standing within its borders than most other states. This paper is dedicated to the memory of Paul Thompson and in salute to his outstanding contributions to Michigan botany and to the Michigan Botanical Club.

Page  68 ï~~68 THE MICHIGAN BOTANIST Vol. 45 THE MICHIGAN BOTANIST BIG TREE ARTICLES With the agreement of the editor of The Michigan Botanist and the endorsement of the Michigan Botanical Club Board of Directors, a series of articles on Michigan's big trees was started in The Michigan Botanist in 1992 (see Table 1). Each article provides a description and illustration of the species along with the location of the champion, directions on how to reach it, and its most recent measurements. Consulting these papers before going out to search for a particular tree can be a useful time saver. The third paper in this series reports on a tree that has since been lost in a storm. Reprints of these articles are available from Elwood B. Ehrle. HOW TO MEASURE AND REPORT A BIG TREE National and State Champion status is based on a point system. The number of points is obtained by adding the circumference of the trunk, in inches, 4%' above the ground to the height in feet and % of the average crown spread in feet. Trees or shrubs that are within 5 points of one another are considered to be cochampions. The circumference of the trunk is usually the easiest measurement to make. A tape can be run around the trunk at 4%' above the ground or a string can be used if a long tape is not available. In situations where the tree grows on a steep slope, there may be some uncertainty as to just where on the trunk 4%2' comes. In these cases, it is best to measure the circumference at 4%' on both the up-slope and down-slope sides and average them together. If a tree trunk branches below 4%', the least circumference between 4% feet and the ground should be measured. The height is best determined by using a clinometer, Abney Hand Level, transit, or other instrument for measuring the angle formed by sighting the base and top of the tree. If this angle is measured 100' from the tree, a table of tangents can be used to convert the number of degrees of the angle to the height of the tree in feet. Some modern clinometers, besides providing the angle from base to top, will also provide the height as a percentage of the distance from the tree. This feature is most useful in association with a laser range finder to measure the distance to the tree. If instruments to measure the angle, are not available a straight stick can be used by backing away from the tree to measure its height. Hold the stick at arm's length while backing away from the tree. When far enough from the tree to sight over the hand holding the stick to the base of the tree and over the top of the stick to the top of the tree, you are at a distance from the tree equal to the height of the tree. For this to be accurate, you must be on ground level with the tree base. There are several other more or less reliable methods of measuring the heights of trees. If a tree stands alone and casts a shadow on a sunny day, the length of the shadow can be measured and compared to the shadow cast by a yardstick. For instance, if the yardstick (3') casts a 6' shadow (each foot of the yardstick casts a 2' shadow) and the tree casts a 120' shadow, the height of the

Page  71 ï~~2006 THE MICHIGAN BOTANIST 71 tree is 60'. Another method that works quite well is to have someone of known height, say 6', stand at the base of the tree. When you back away from the tree holding a yardstick at arms length, you will reach a point where you can measure the apparent height of the person standing at the tree base and the apparent height of the tree from that point. For instance, if the 6' person measures 6" on the yardstick (1" for each foot) held at arm's length and the tree measures 30", the height of the tree is 30'. For trees standing in a mixed woods where it may be difficult to be sure which top branches belong to which tree and shadows and long lines of sight are not available, the use of an Abney hand-held level, transit, or other instruments may be necessary. In those cases, County Extension Agents, county or city foresters, college or university personnel or other experienced persons may be of help. A most imaginative method for measuring heights was undertaken by a person who waited for a very calm day, bought a helium filled balloon from a flower shop, tied it to the end of his fishing line, and let out enough line so the balloon rose to the top of the tree. He then tied a knot in the fishing line and reeled it in. Once the balloon was off, he tied the end of his line to a nearby shrub and backed away until he found his knot. With a tape measure it was easy and accurate to measure the distance from the end of the line to the knot. Voilh! He had his height. The average crown spread can be measured by examining the farthest extent of the crown on all sides of the tree. You then measure the tip-to-tip distance across the largest crown length. Do the same at right angles to the first and average the two. The average is known as the average crown spread. To report a big tree, first determine the identity of the tree. It will not be sufficient to say, "It is some kind of oak," unless you are prepared to send leaves, twig tips and acorns in with your measurements. Personnel from your County Extension Service or a nearby college or university may be able to help you confirm the identity of the tree. Second, take the measurements described above. If this is not practical, at least measure the girth in inches at 42' above the ground. Finally, send the name of the tree, its exact location, and measurements to the State's Big Tree Coordinator, (for the near future the author of this paper). This will insure consideration of the tree for inclusion in the state's Big Tree Inventory. It is hoped that GPS records can be included to more accurately indicate the location. You can always find out who the big tree coordinator is for any state in the country by contacting the Director, National Big Tree Program, American Forests, PO Box 2000, Washington D.C. 20013 (www.americanforests.org).

Table 5 presents a list of these same trees and shrubs arranged by county. The scientific and common names used in these lists are those regularly used in books and manuals treating the plants known to be growing in the Great Lakes area. Important among these are Barnes and Wagner (1981 and 2004), Voss' three volumes on the flora of Michigan (Voss, 1972, 1985, & 1996), Gleason and Cronquist (1991), Dirr (1983), and Rehder (1951). In most cases there is little uncertainty about what name to use. A few, however, are problematic. Most of these are related to hybrids between species or a difference of taxonomic opin

Unfortunately, both of these types of problems occur in our most common trees, oaks and maples. Where more than one champion tree of a given species is listed, it is likely due to the designation of co-champions or situations where the state and onetime national champions are different trees. There are also cases where only the

Page  137 ï~~2006 THE MICHIGAN BOTANIST 137 girth is known for recently discovered trees. In these cases the current or past champions, for which complete data are known, are also listed. Finally, in other cases, large individuals of a particular species of tree are listed because they likely represent the upcoming state or national champions (should current champions die) and should be monitored. The measurements in Table 2 are given as inches at 4% feet above the ground for girth and as feet for height and average crown spread. In most cases these measurements were made in accordance with the specifications given above. Periodically, when a tree is re-measured it is found to have a lesser height or average crown spread. This is usually due to a loss of branches caused by a storm since the earlier measurements were made. The date of the most recent measurement is given in the last column of Table 2. Some of these trees haven't been remeasured in many years. All interested parties are urged to join the search for them and to report their current measurements. The Town column of Table 2 may indicate the city in which a tree or shrub exists or, where more useful, the name of the township. For some entries, a state park may be listed or the name of a lake or other recognized area if it is likely to be helpful in finding the location. The location column provides the best information available in the state's big tree records. In many cases it is both exact and accurate, e.g. a street address or intersection. In other cases, the information is more vague, e.g. near Sleeping Bear Dunes. In some cases hand drawn maps are available in the files. The observer(s) column in Table 2 lists over 160 people who have been directly involved over the years in reporting on the trees and shrubs of Michigan. Many more have probably been involved but their names are lost. Among this large group of people, ten stand out as being frequent contributors. In addition to the author of this paper, they are Stu Bassett, Robert Bloye, Jeff Boddy, Joe Kaplan, Gail McPherson, H. J.Neff, Richard Pomorski, John Spencer and, of course, Paul Thompson. Without the steadfast and long- term involvement of these ten, there would be no Big Tree and Shrub Program in Michigan. The Michigan Botanical Club owes them a profound debt of gratitude. Table 3 (alphabetical list of abbreviations), 4 (common names) and 5 (county lists) are included here to serve various interests. Table 3 should be helpful to readers not familiar with some of the abbreviations used in table 2. Table 4 should be useful to those who rely on common names more than technical botanical names. The common names are listed in reverse order, e.g. Oak, Bebb's rather than Bebb's Oak to keep all the oaks together, the Norway Maple with the other maples, etc. Table 5 is included for the convenience of those interested in one or more counties. These often include local newspaper writers or editors, magazine writers or editors, those organizing big tree bus or field trips, and local boards, commissions and other political entities.

It is hoped that users of the list will continue to supply such information to the State's Big Tree Coordinator and that each succeeding version of these lists will be better than the last. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Several Western Michigan University students helped with the development of "The Michigan Big Tree and Shrub Inventory." In recent years the computer expertise of Mrs. Sarah Williams in updating the big tree and shrub database is particularly appreciated. The continuous help of my wife, Nancy, in preparation of the manuscript made this paper possible. The help of the Hanes Fund in supporting the state's big tree and shrub work is gratefully acknowledged. LITERATURE CITED Barnes, B.V. & W.H. Wagner. 1981. Michigan Trees.
