Help us crown this year’s Tree of the Year, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Now is your chance to vote for your favourite tree in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland as we reveal the shortlists in our Tree of the Year contest. Every vote will be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a two-night stay at DoubleTree by Hilton hotel of your choice. Remember, you only have one vote so use it well!

Click on the links below to view all the shortlisted trees and place your vote before 5pm on 9 October.

The winning tree in each country will benefit from a “Tree LC” care grant of £1,000. Plus all runner-up trees that receive more than 1,000 votes will be eligible for a grant of £500. The grant can be used to arrange a tree health check or advice from an arboriculturalist, provide interpretation or educational materials or simply just hold a celebratory event in honour of the tree.

Each country’s winning Tree of the Year will go on to represent that nation in the European Tree of the Year competition, organised by the Environmental Partnership Association.

We will reveal the winners later this year.

Clara Govier, head of charities at People’s Postcode Lottery said:

"We’re delighted our players are supporting the Woodland Trust and providing the opportunity for communities all over Great Britain to celebrate these fantastic trees and care for them long into the future."
