The Noble Trees of Spartanburg Contest

The annual Noble Trees of Spartanburg Contest is a way to educate school children and Spartanburg residents and visitors about the importance of Noble Trees to our community.  Additionally, this contest will be a means to locate some of Spartanburg County's largest and most notable specimen trees.

This competition will assist us as we work to create a interactive map of the Tree Canopy of Spartanburg County and show open areas where Noble Trees need to be planted so that future generations can enjoy these amazing trees.

Competition Rules and Details

Noble Trees will only be nominated once and a tree must be located in Spartanburg County.   A tree may only be nominated once, so check the below map to ensure it's not already been selected.
