Annual tree awards relaunches

Wednesday, June 8, 2022 by Tai Moses

Who doesn’t have a favorite tree – or several – around the city? Now you can nominate your best-loved trees for Austin’s retooled Tree of the Year Awards. The original Tree of the Year observance was launched in 2007 and ran until 2013. Nearly a decade later, the awards are back and better than ever, thanks to TreeFolks, the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, and their partners and supporters. Community members may submit their nominations in a variety of categories: Small, Large, Schoolyard Tree, Story Tree, and Unique Tree. It shouldn’t be difficult to find suitable trees in every category. Nominate your tree!
