Topological indices have important effect to develop chemical sciences by using graph invariants. The Zagreb indices are the most used topological indices in mathematical chemistry literature. Novel forms of Zagreb indices have been extensively defined in recent times. One of the latest version of the Zagreb indices is the reverse Zagreb alpha index. Extremal chemical trees with respect to Zagreb indices have been studied many times in the last two years. In this paper maximum chemical trees were characterized with respect to the first reverse Zagreb alpha index.
