National Champion Trees (Frank Callahan)

Frank Callahan is a leading nominator for National Champion Trees, having reported the largest individual tree for more than 80 species.  He has discovered in Oregon locations for more than 35 species of native plants not formerly known in the state, mostly northern extensions of the California floristic province.  He is currently working on six as yet undescribed taxa, three each in Oregon and California.  He is self-taught, driven by an insatiable curiosity for all things botanical.  Frank consults as a field botanist for the USFS and the BLM.
