2018 Awesome Tree Contest

The 2018 Awesome Tree Contest has begun!  We are looking for the Most Awesome Trees in the city!  If you know one, enter it and WIN!  The prizes are great and besides, it’s lots of fun.

The categories for 2018 are:

My favorite tree in Burlington  (justify your choice)
Kid’s Choice (for ages twelve and under, explain your selection)
Picture Perfect
Survivor (shows it has overcome adversity and lived)
Habitat Tree (one that gives a home for something special)
It could be bird nests, cavities for mammals, bat roosts, insects, woodpeckers, and tree frogs. Could be a tree encouraging a particularly interesting fungus or providing the shade for woodland understory plants. Please tell us about the tree and what environment it helps create.

All trees MUST be located in the City of Burlington.  Entries must be received by October 1st to win! Winning trees from the past 10 years are not eligible in the same category. A list of past winners from the last ten years is available in the menu on the right.
