    At Vermont’s Tree Steward Conference on October 20, 2012, the winners of our Hall of Horrors contest were selected. The winners represent the best tree bloopers we don’t ever want to see again- BEWARE – They are very scary!


    The contest will run again in 2013 so be on the lookout for tree bloopers over the next year. You don’t have to attend the conference to enter (though it’s worth it just to see the display of tree abnormalites). We hope by sharing these horrors, we can help stop them from appearing in our communities.


    Congratulations to the Winners of the

    1st Annual Hall of Horrors Tree Blooper Contest!
