Tree of the Year time again

The Woodland Trust is asking for nominations for Tree of the Year, 2017.  The Trust said:

From beautiful cherry trees to towering elms and magnificent oaks, do you have a tree with an interesting story that is special to you, your friends and family or your community?

Tree of the Year returns for the fourth year and we’re calling for your most beautiful, interesting and quirky trees to be contenders. Is there a tree that everyone climbs as a child, or shelters under in bad weather, perhaps it’s supplied your town with apples for as long as you can remember, or got a gnarly trunk that looks like a face?

Thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we’re offering up to £1000 in tree care awards to the most successful trees. They can be used for arboricultural surveys or other maintenance, interpretation or even to support a community event in celebration of the tree.

Nominations are now open!
