I think that I will never see a poem lovely as a tree.
- Joyce Kilmer
Turns out, Joyce Kilmer was right. Trees ARE pretty awesome. And right now, as
part of 'National Tree Huggers 2015' contest, Just Forests wants people in Ireland
(and further afield) to appreciate the fantastic leafy friends surrounding us.
This year, people and their favourite trees will take part in the contest where members of the public will vote on the one they most like.
The tree with the most votes will be Ireland's nomination in the ‘European Tree of the Year 2016’ contest. And, most importantly, your support will help Tree Planting & Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR) projects build a better world for everyone.
Through the National Tree Huggers Contest Just Forests (the organisers) aims to get people in Ireland to look around them and appreciate the fabulous trees in their own locality.
The tree/story with the most votes will be Ireland’s nomination in the European Tree of the Year 2016 Contest (ETY 2016).
Voting commences on Thursday 1st October and continues for the whole month until Saturday 31st October.
