Welcome to the site in search of GIANT TREES!
This site aims to catalog the largest trees in the South of Brazil, to know them and to know the state of conservation. Here we can share and exchange experiences with all those interested in studying and appreciating the great trees. You can help us build this database and find out which are the largest trees in height, diameter and volume, by region, state, forest type, etc. We can measure them together! Climbing them or gauging them on the ground. Undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and those interested in high-altitude work and canopy ecology can join us on this journey, discovering new frontiers of study over the trees.

ACHIEVING THE INACESSIBLE
Climbing trees by rope to map the canopy, measuring branches, branches, the correct height of the tree, the diameters of the trunk in different positions of height, knowing the species of the canopy (plants and animals) ... It is exciting! Difficult and dangerous? Perhaps. With rope climbing techniques and correct equipment is easy and safe. Thus, we can study and manage large trees, isolated in open areas or in the forests, without knocking them down or assaulting their trunk and associated life forms, avoiding climbing with the use of spores or pecon. Conserving the trees and the ecosystem supported by them is of extreme importance for ecological studies in old growth forest because of its rarity and lack of information. These studies complement knowledge areas in biometrics, forest management, botany, phytosociology, ecology, fauna, among others, attending several areas of scientific and professional knowledge, besides encouraging arboriculture activity and canopy ecology still incipient in Brazil.
What is the biggest tree you have ever hugged so far?
I don 't know. I never paid attention. I do not hug trees. I'm shy.
