A bit of ‘Tree LC’

The winning trees in each country will also benefit from a Tree Care award of £1,000, with any runner-up trees receiving 1000 separate votes or more, subject to the eligibility criteria , a £500 Tree Care Award. The award can be used to arrange a health check from an arboriculturalist, provide interpretation or educational materials or simply just hold a community celebratory event in honour of the tree.

Once we have our country winners we will be selecting just one tree from this public vote to represent the UK in the European Tree of the Year competition, organised by the Environmental Partnership Association. Please read our Terms and Conditions for more details

We will reveal the winners later this year.
