The purpose of the European Tree of the Year contest is to highlight the significance of trees across Europe that deserve our care and protection. The European Tree of the Year contest doesn't focus on beauty, size or age but rather on the tree's story and its connection to people. It looks for trees that have become a part of the wider community.
We need you to vote from 1 to 28 February 2017. You will be able to see each tree’s number of votes live online until 22 February when they will become hidden from view. The final results will then be announced at an Award ceremony in Brussels on 21 March.
