Escaping the ravages of nature and man, the champion trees of Arkansas are the largest of their species in the state. With lives spanning hundreds of years, these silent sentinels have watched history unfold around them. "Champion Trees" is a one-hour AETN original documentary that explores these natural wonders and how they influence and inspire the people around them. Featured in the documentary are champion trees from throughout Arkansas from Fayetteville to Helena and many points in between. Also featured is Hot Springs artist Linda Palmer who has spent years photographing and drawing these trees, artfully preserving them for future generations.
