Do You Have a Favourite Tree?

Like many people I love walking through the woods and seeing trees and the insects, birds and mammals that live in and around them. It would however be very difficult to choose a favourite, so many of them are so special for different reasons.

But choosing a favourite tree is what the Woodland Trust is currently asking us to do!

It's time to nominate your favourite tree for the Tree of the Year contest.

Your favourite tree may be the most beautiful tree in your local area or the oldest inhabitant of your hometown, a founding figure in your region’s identity, a natural monument in the nation’s story or a tree that is under a particular threat from development.

Nominations are open to any living tree in the UK that has a story to tell. Anyone can nominate a tree and the contest closes on 19 July, so time to get your thinking cap on!

You can find out more and nominate a tree here

Here are just a few of my favourite trees in Edinburgh

Midmar Paddock

I have some favorite ones, but they are not in the UK (but if they were, they would probably be on Skye or Mull)! What a good idea for a contest!

There are some fabulous oak trees in and around The New Forest …

All the best Jan
