The European Tree of the Year challenge began in 2011. It was motivated by the already well established Tree of the Year challenge, which has been organised annually in the Czech Republic by the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation for a long time.

The European round is a finale comprising of the victors of the national rounds.

The motivation behind the European Tree of the Year is to highlight the essentialness of old trees in the characteristic and social legacy that merits our care and security. Not at all like different challenges, the European Tree of the Year doesn’t concentrate on excellence, size or age but instead on the tree’s story and its association with individuals. We are searching for trees that have turned into a part of the more extensive group.

Consistently a huge number of individuals take an interest in the challenge. The quantity of nations taking an interest has expanded from 5 to 16. We are continually searching for new accomplices in European nations, so that the insurance and protection trees – bearers of genius loci – becomes a topic of well needed focus and attention.
