European Tree of the Year 2020


We are searching for trees with the most interesting stories

Now choose the 10th European Tree of the Year


For ten years we have been searching for trees with the most interesting stories. Voting takes place from 1 to 29 February 2020. When voting, always select two trees. Votes in the last week (from 23 to 29 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 17th of March, where the winners will be awarded.
