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:
