The Great American Tree Competition

A nationwide competition is underway to locate the 2016 "Great American Tree."

The American Grove is looking for a tree that has extraordinary fall color, a unique flower, fruit, nut or leaf detail that sets them apart and makes them an exceptional and a truly “one-of-a-kind” tree.

Grove members may cast their vote for 2016's Great American Tree (one vote per person) until the 15th of December on the poll here.

The top 5 trees with the most votes will be placed in the national competition. An "all star" urban forestry panel will determine the winner of the Great American Tree, which will be announced on December 22, 2016.

The first place winner of the Great American Tree competition will receive $500, second place is $250 and third place is $100.

That Tree was the winner of the 2015 Great American Tree Competition. Check out all of the 2015 nominees here!
