<b><i>State record holder...<br></b></i>
A large Fremont cottonwood tree in Castle Valley is officially the largest of its kind in the state of Utah. The tree, which is likely at least 200 years old, is 77 feet tall, has a trunk circumference of 515 inches and a crown-spread average of 104 feet. Johnny Atkin and Angel Lopez of Atlas Tree Service spent part of Friday, April 29, which was also Arbor Day, climbing the tree, making final measurements and checking the cottonwood’s health. Atkin first noticed the tree, which is located on Castle Valley Drive at the site of one of the valley’s first homesteads, when the company was doing work in Castle Valley in March and after taking measurements at that time he determined that it surpassed the size of the former record-holder, which is located on the Brigham Young University campus in Provo. The tree has now been officially registered with the State Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands as the biggest Fremont cottonwood in Utah and the largest of any species of trees in the state. It is also currently listed as the second largest cottonwood tree in the nation with the largest located in Arizona. Photo by Ron Drake
