Amazing Tree Quest Winners Announced

A pair of hugging birches; a tree planted by an expectant mother; an historic Maple at Labatt Memorial Park; a plea from a 6 year old to "Save Trees, Save Earth". These are a few of the winners of London's Amazing Tree Quest announced  on September 28.

At a gala event at Windermere Manor, over one hundred "tree huggers" gathered to see the winners of the Amazing Tree Quest, listen to live music, and enjoy food and drink.

"These trees and their stories show the love that Londoners have for their trees," said David Crockett, chair of ReForest London.

Two new categories, Best New Tree and Best Tree Video, elicited meaningful entries and stories.

"With the launch of London's Million Tree Challenge, we wanted to celebrate the new trees that people plant and remember how important tree planting is to our future," said Crockett.

A group of London leaders and tree experts, including Mayor Joe Fontana, Police Chief Brad Duncan, Urban Forester Ivan Listar, served as the judges for this year's contest. Two outside organizations, the London Arts Council and the London Short Film Showcase, judged the Tree-Inspired Art and Best Tree Video entrants.

The Amazing Tree Quest was sponsored for the third year in a row by Clintar Groundskeeping. Windermere Manor donated the venue and catering services, and rtraction donated web services.
"We are proud to be associated with an organization such as ReForest London that cares so deeply about our environment and the city we all live in and share. Congratulations to this year's winners!" said Mike Malleck, co-owner of Clintar.
