Great Trees of Sheffield - A fun contest aiming to bring some ‘positivitree’ to the Treescapes of Sheffield, England.
The Great Trees Of Sheffield 2017 ( #gtos17 ) contest is now officially launched! In what I like to call a #BarkOff for the best trees in Sheffield, the contest is now live.
This fun contest is all about finding, recognising & promoting the very special trees of Sheffield.
We are now looking for trees with great stories to them. Special trees, to the very special people of Sheffield or folks farther afield. Trees that they grew up with or for one reason or another are dear to them or their family.
Anyone can nominate a tree that is within the boundaries of Sheffield. (All wards of Sheffield as of Jan. 2017 included) . Single trees, avenues, groupings of special trees can all be nominated.
Even fallen, felled or 'Lost' Great Trees Of Sheffield can be nominated if they have a wonderful story.
Please do send us your favourite trees with their Great stories now. Mail to: email@example.com
Closing date for 'entrees' is 1st May 2017.
Judging & Results will be announced early June
Any PRIVATE trees MUST have owners permission to be nominated.
The Great Trees Of Sheffield love to be 'Liked' & Hugged! Please do 'Follow' us on Twitter #gtos17
