In celebration of trees’ innumerable accomplishments and the benefits they provide, the American Grove promotes the Great American Tree Competition (GATC) every year to commemorate the country’s most remarkable trees.
To celebrate Earth Day, we are now accepting nominations of favorite trees from all over the US. If you would like to participate in our search for America’s most remarkable trees here’s what we need from you:
Photo/photos of the tree
Brief description of why it’s special
Size (estimated height and diameter.)
Can’t choose just one tree? Multiple submissions are encouraged. Directly upload your nominations to our 2020 Great American Tree album in this group under the photos tab.
Submissions will be accepted until midnight on June 4th.
After the submission period has ended, American Grove members will have 10 business days, until June 14th, to cast one vote for their favorite entry. The top five vote-winning trees will move on to the next round of the competition. An “all-star” urban forestry panel will determine the winner of the 2020 Great American Tree, which will be announced on July 4th. The first-place tree will earn a feature on The American Grove homepage, along with a framed photo of the winning tree.
We can’t wait to see this year’s most remarkable trees!
