England's Tree of the Year - The Sycamore Gap Tree

England’s Tree of the Year 2016 and nominee for European Tree of the Year, the Sycamore Gap Tree

After winning 2,542 votes to be named England’s Tree of the Year 2016, the Sycamore Gap Tree is now competing to be named European Tree of the Year.

The Sycamore Gap Tree is one of the most photographed trees in the UK, growing in a dramatic dip alongside Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland. The tree is famous for being filmed in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves in 1991, and is now nicknamed the ‘Robin Hood tree’ despite being over 130 miles from Sherwood Forest.
