Champion Trees

Professor Jerry Sortomme and I led annual tours of the Champion and Heritage trees of the south Santa Barbara Coast from 2001 until Covid stopped us in 2020. Although Jerry has left the area, I am still involved in locating, preserving, and sharing information about the largest species of trees in our state and nation.
