European Tree of the Year 2017
Voting in the European Tree of the Year competition is now closed. The winners will be announced on 21 March.
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.
