European Tree of the Year

A 700 year-old elm tree growing on the banks of the River Beli Lom by the village of Nisovo, near the Bulgarian city of Ruse, has won honorary third place in the European Tree of the Year contest: The highest number of votes was cast for a linden in the Somogy region of Hungary, while second place went to an elm in Romania. This is the second time the European Tree of the Year contest has been held. It does not select trees by age, but looks for trees that are loved and regarded as symbols of the local community. The award ceremony will be held on 23rd May in the offices of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in Brussels .
