Judges poised to choose London's most amazing trees

An impressive list of London leaders and tree experts will choose winners in London’s first Amazing Tree Quest. The contest, launched in May by ReForest London, seeks nominations for amazing trees in 10 categories.


Although the contest ends on July 31, voting will continue until just before the awards ceremony on September 25. Judges will award prizes in the 10 categories, but online voters will choose the People’s Choice Award.


Judges will view all the entries online, choose finalists, and then personally visit the finalist trees to make their decision.
