I have found several giant grandaddy saguaro's that live in Yavapi County, North of Lake Pleasant. "Condor" was the champ but it now is in laying on the ground. "Big Bubba" is now one of the co-champs as well as "Ancient One".
My grandson and I have found several giant grandaddy saguaro's that live in Maricopia County, near HorseshoeLake. "Grand One" Also was the champ but it now is in laying on the ground due to a strong summer storm in 2007. "Canfralabr" was a co-champ but it now is in laying on the ground due to the Cave Creek Complex (CCC) Fire. Now there are several co-champion saguaro's. Two in Yavapai County, four in Maricopa County, two in Pima County and four in Pinal County. All the present champion and co-champions saguaro's are listed in both the The National Register of Big Trees and The Arizona Register of Big Trees. Go to the statistics page to see a list of all of the past and present champions.
Did you know that these grandaddy saguaro's have bark on them? I thought they were scars from forest fires, frost, insects, disease or something. Some patches of bark look similar to the bark on an old Pondarosa Pine tree. The bark area sheds the needles that saguaro's normally have. Go to the statistics page and select one of the underlined names under the "Location" column to view photo's of several of these super grandaddy champion saguaro's.
