Vote in the European Tree of the Year contest


In the European Tree of the Year contest, we are searching for the tree with the most interesting story. Voting takes place from 1 to 28 February 2018. When voting, always select two trees. Votes in the last week (from 22 to 28 February) are secret, meaning that preliminary vote counts will not be available on the web page.

The results will be announced at the Award Ceremony in Brussels, the 21st of March, where the winners will be awarded.
