Do you have a Champion Tree in your yard?


  • First, check the City of Sebastian Champion Tree Inventory to see if your tree species is listed and check the current champion’s statistics.  Keep in mind that only native and non-invasive naturalized tree species are eligible.
  • If your tree is not listed or seems like it might be competitive with those listed, submit a nomination form: NominationForm.pdf
  • Nominations can be mailed to or dropped off at the Sebastian City Hall.
  • The nominations are reviewed and assigned for measurement at regular Natural Resources Board meetings on the 1st Tuesday of each month.
  • You will be contacted by a Natural Resources Board member to arrange a convenient time to obtain the measurements of your candidate tree.
  • There are a number of native trees that do not yet have State Champions.  They can be found at Native Tree Species in Florida without Champions at the following link:
