About the contest

 

The European Tree of the Year contest originated in 2011. It was inspired by the popular Tree of the Year contest, which has been organised in the Czech Republic by the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation for many years. The European round is a finale consisting of the winners of the national rounds.

Every year, the online voting for the European Tree of the Year is organized by Environmental Partnership Association (EPA), of which the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation is a member.

The first European voting was organized in 2011. Since then the number of countries involved in the contest has risen from 5 to 13. We are helping to establish the contest in countries outside of Europe now.
