The Victorian Tree of the Year contest raises awareness of the state’s natural heritage, and the benefits trees provide to our culture, our climate, and our way of life.
In 2021, nine trees from the National Trust Significant Tree Register have been shortlisted for this coveted award, with six of the finalists hailing from metro Melbourne and three from regional Victoria, all providing their local communities with serenity and respite.
Simon Ambrose, CEO of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria), said the Victorian Tree of the Year is a fantastic opportunity for us to slow down and appreciate the natural wonders that surround us.
“After an incredibly challenging 2020, I’m sure many Victorians can relate to having a renewed sense of appreciation for our gorgeous trees, as for many they were welcome companions on our countless lockdown walks.”
