A chestnut tree that grew from the pocket of a drowned sailor washed up from the Spanish Armada and an oriental plane tree of ancient Greek descent. They are just two of six charismatic contenders shortlisted by the Woodland Trust in the search for Northern Ireland’s Tree of the Year 2017.

The competition aims to highlight and celebrate the country’s remarkable, yet unsung, trees. And members of the public are asked to play a part by simply voting for their favourite from the final shortlist. 

Northern Ireland’s six splendid specimens, chosen by experts from across a number of organisations, are:  

  • The Armada Tree: Spanish chestnut, Cairncastle, near Larne, County Antrim
  • The Bicycle Tree: Horse chestnut, Lisnarick village, County Fermanagh
  • The College Tree: Cut leaved hornbeam, Foyle College/Londonderry High School, Derry–Londonderry
  • The Erskine House Tree: Oriental plane tree, Belfast City Hospital/Queen’s University Belfast
  • The Weeping Ash: Main Street, Bangor, County Down
  • The Weeping Tree: Weeping ash, Paupers’ Graveyard, Newry, County Down

The winning tree will benefit from a tree care award of up to £1,000, which might assist a health check from a specialist, educational materials or a community event in celebration of the tree.
