History and genealogy can get a little dry, and even stuffy. So these pages are an attempt to be a little light-hearted. This page is an index of the biggest trees in Chickasaw County, and this link will take you to a Word Cloud of the county's surnames.
The source of this tree information is the 2003 publication Big Trees in Iowa. The 5 trees listed were the biggest trees of their species in the state as of 2003.
We would love to add additional information to this section, including other fun lists, photos of trees and other characteristics of Chickasaw County. Please feel free to contact your county coordinator at the link above.
