Tree Of The Year 2018

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 trees in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as we reveal the shortlists in our Tree of the Year contest.

Once we have a winning tree from each country’s public vote, a panel of experts will select one of the four trees to go forward to represent the UK in the European Tree of the Year competition.

Click on the buttons below to view the shortlisted trees for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. You can vote for one tree in each country. Make sure to place your votes before the competition closes at 9am on 8 October.

By taking part and voting for your tree of the year, you will also be entered into a prize draw to be in with a chance of winning a £100 gift voucher from our partner, Joules.

A bit of 'Tree LC'

Tree of the Year websiteThe winning tree in each country will be eligible for a Tree Care award of £1,000, whilst selected runners-up will be awarded £500, subject to eligibility. 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.

You can read the terms and conditions of the competition, the prize draw, and the Tree Care awards on our terms and conditions page. These terms and conditions were amended on 17 September 2018.

The Tree of the Year competition is run in support of the Charter for Trees, Woods and People – an initiative that sets out 10 tree principles to embed in our society for a future where people and trees are stronger together. Find out more and voice your support at
