Come see Maryland’s largest known tree, an American sycamore near the Potomac River in upper Montgomery County (in Dickerson Conservation Park). Coincidentally, located between it and the river is the Montgomery County champion cottonwood, and nearby on the C&O Canal is the county’s champion silver maple.
