Competing with Europe!
Have your say on the European Tree of the Year, by casting a vote in the annual competition. Voting opens this month, with The Gilwell Oak representing the UK. The tree can be found in Gilwell Park, Essex, on the Epping estate where Robert Baden-Powell championed the tree as a metaphor for the Scouting movement in 1929. It’s hoped the tree will do equally well for the UK. To vote, go to woodlandtrust.org.uk
Can The Gilwell Oak take the European tree crown?
