Not shocking to see Washington on the list. That is one of the things I noticed when I moved here. The trees are massive compared to the northeast.

I pulled the data from a website that shows the largest tree species, and a select few of the specimen and their location. I reconfigured the data to do it by state rather then by species. If a state with large trees such as Idaho didn't show up in the list, it just means it doesn't host one of the largest specimens for that species, however it could still be much larger than most other tree species. If you know of a site that shows each states largest trees you are more than welcome to share it.

That makes sense, I wonder what makes FL and to some extant LA have the majority of record holders in the south. If you look at that site FL shows up a lot especially in the girth category.
