Nominate Bristol’s Tree of the Year
You don’t have to look far to find a vast canopy of trees in Bristol.
The Victorians left a glorious tree legacy for the city, with oaks and sycamore’s gracing the Downs and blossoming cherry trees in the leafy streets and parks of Bishopston, Redland, Cotham, and St Andrews.
To celebrate this, The Bristol Tree Forum is hosting its first Bristol Tree of the Year Competition and is seeking worthy nominations.
The purpose of the competition is to increase public awareness of the arboreal heritage of Bristol and the many benefits that trees bring us.
Local Bristol community groups and organisations are invited to submit their candidate tree before 1 September 2018. The tree must be within the Bristol City Council boundary and in a public space accessible to everyone. And, just one tree per group or organisation may be submitted.
Candidates will be shortlisted by Bristol Tree Forum and the public invited to vote for their favourite tree from 15 October until midnight, 15 November 2018.
The winner will be announced during National Tree Week, held between 24 November and 2 December 2018.
