Nominations open: 2019 Victorian Tree of the Year contest

Nominations have opened for the 2019 iteration of the Victorian Tree of the Year contest.

The Victorian Tree of the Year contest aims to raise awareness for the conservation of Victoria’s natural heritage, and the benefits that significant trees can provide. Inaugurated in 2016, the first winner of the contest was a mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans), known as the “Kalatha Giant” that functioned as a symbol of bushfire survival for the Toolangi & Castella community following the Black Saturday bushfires of 2009. A monterey pine (Pinus radiata) at Mount Beckworth Scenic Reserve, affectionately known as the ‘”Lollipop Tree,” was voted the winner of the 2018 contest, from a shortlist of nine trees selected by the National Trust’s expert committee from nominations received earlier in the year.

The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is the state’s leading advocate for the protection of trees, celebrating the benefits they provide to our communities. Since 1982 the Trust has classified over 20,000 trees in 1,200 places across the state on the National Trust Significant Tree Register.

Nominations close 4 March 2019. For more information on how to nominate a tree for the 2019 prize, visit the National Trust website here.
