State Champion Trees

Empress Tree

State Champion Empress Tree, Paulownia tomentosa, is located in Section 46, near gravesite 305. The tree has a circumference of 213 inches, is 57 feet high and has an average crown spread of 64 feet.

While we are extremely proud of our state champion trees, it’s important to note that Empress Tree is a non-native, invasive tree. We encourage you to enjoy this Arlington Cemetery Champion, but at the same time discourage all from planting it.
