And last but least only among champions, the four flyweights--bear (Quercus ilicifolia), Havard (Quercus havardii), dwarf chinkapin (Quercus prinoides), and Mohr oaks--with 1-foot thick trunks and less than 100 points may look like they are just getting started until you realize that they are best known as thicket-forming shrubs.
Other notable new champions include a 523-point co-champion live oak in Waycross, Georgia, with a crown spread of nearly 50 yards; a 420-point co-champion American elm in Shelby County, Tennessee (a fortunate find given that its co-champ has been diagnosed as dying from Dutch elm disease); and eight species that previously had no champion: holacantha (Holacantha emoryi), redherry juniper (Juniperus erythrocarpa), Nebraska's dwarf chinkapin oak Quercus prinoides), Mohr oak (Quercus mohriana), orange (Citrus sinensis), jumping-bean sapium (Sapium biloculare).
