Tree Spotter's Guide Competition

Congratulations to all those who entered the competition...

We had lots of entrants to the competition, and it was great to hear from all of you.

Only 2 people managed to correctly ID all 5 of the trees (Tree B was a little tricky!), so we've decided to make a few adjustments to how we pick winners....

The 2 winners will receive 2 copies of the book each. The winners of the competition are:

  • Stephen Middleton
  • Kev Reid

Congratulations guys, your copies will be winging their way to you very shortly!

We have also decided to pick at random 6 runners up from the list of those who managed to get 4 out of 5 of the answers correct. Our runners up will receive one copy of the book each. And our runners up are:

  • Jason Story
  • Emma Appleby
  • Pat Silver
  • Darren Emerick
  • Pearl Melvill
  • Bob Gardner

Well done all of you!

For those who missed out on winning a prize this time, don't worry, we've more competitions coming very soon - including a photo competition coming in the autumn... To be the first to find out about competition and other exciting events at the National Arboretum sign up to our newsletter
