National Tree Day competition
Published on 25 July 2022
As part of this year’s National Tree Day celebrations the City of Hobart is giving away one beautiful, advanced tree from our nursery.
To win all entrants had to dowas tell us in 150 words or less about the Hobart tree that stole their heart.
The entry judged the best will win its author an advanced tree they get to choose from our nursery.
Maybe your story is about a tree that takes your breath away every year with its beautiful autumn colours, or an avenue of trees that provides shelter and shade on hot summer days
Your special tree might stand guard on a suburban street corner, or it could hold pride of place in one of our many parks, like the two magnificent giant sequoias found in St David's Park.
Or perhaps your tree is one of our majestic blue gums, which provide habitat for birds like the critically endangered swift parrot, our owls and microbats.
It could even be a tree in your garden that has presided over countless family picnics, or a tree by your bedroom window visited by chirruping native birds.
Maybe there is something unusual, even quirky about the tree that stole your heart, like the massive rubber plant that snakes its way up four stories of a Hobart CBD building.
There are so many inspiring tree stories in Hobart, tell us yours!
We'd also love to see a photo (or drawing) of you and your favourite Hobart tree.
Entries must be submitted by Sunday 31 July 2022, and the winner will be announced on 4 August 2022 by email or phone. We will not contact you via social media.
