What is the largest known Atlas Cedar? NWENTS
February 14, 2009


I recently measured an Atlas Cedar tree in Oregon at 302 AF Points (5’
4” DBH). I was trying to find what the largest Atlas Cedar is in the
US, but since this is a non-native tree, the data is hard to come by
and the National Register doesn’t track it.

The tree I measured is an Atlas Cedar, not a Blue Atlas Cedar. I
checked each states champion registry. Not all list non-native trees.
Some are very outdated lists.

The largest documented Atlas Cedar I could find is a 310 AF point in
Washington state as measured in 1992.

Does anyone know what the largest is?
