Moses Cleaveland Trees
Ginkgo biloba ‘Lake View’
State Champion Trees
Quercus Prinus-Chestnut Oak Specimens of this oak can be seen abundantly around Lake View so it stands to good reason that a state champion specimen would exist on the grounds. This specimen is growing in Section 10, near the road across from Section 19 close to the Wick family monument. Our specimen measures at a circumference of 139”DBH (Diameter Breast Height), 116 feet in height and has a crown width of 95 feet giving it a total of 279 points. This specimen appears equivalent in diameter to a similar specimen lost during 2008 in Section 24 which counted to 130-years.
Magnolia Virginiana-Sweetbay Magnolia This magnolia is exceptional in girth and readily strikes one as being among the largest Sweetbay magnolias in the U.S. This specimen grows on the west side of Section 23 in a hedgerow of trees with adequate space to display its size. Looking south into the horseshoe shaped arrangement of trees by Section 21, one can see this champion on the right side behind the Geo. H. Worthington monument.
