BRIGHT can claim to be home to the biggest pin oak in Australia.
In fact the area has no less than four that top their species list on the national register.
But the pin oak next to the rock wall at the entrance gates to Centenary Park was recently named the national champion.
The National Register for Big Trees records the biggest of every species in the country and lists more than 720 trees.
The tree was nominated by Alan Deumer of Harcourt who is making a name for himself and Bright in the hunt for monster trees.
He has 14 others on the register from around Victoria including another three around Bright.
