Scotland “Tree of the Year” to go forward for United Kingdom European title: Scotland Tree The First to Represent Great Britain

For the first time in the European Tree of the Year competition, a rowan has been chosen to represent Great Britain. The tree called “The Survivor” has been named so for the Carrifran Valley near Moffat in the Borders. It won a public vote run by a charity called Woodland Trust. It was to be named the Scotland’s Tree of the Year back in October.

The Scotland champion has successfully shaken off the competition in recent days, from the Happy Man tree in Hackney to the Chapter House Tree in Port Talbot in Wales. It is looking like this tree is to be named the Great British Tree in 2020.

It now will proceed to go forward to the next competition: The European Tree of the Year. This competition is organized by the Environmental Partnership Association. Voting will take place online during February. The panel at Woodland trust that decided this heavy decision has also realized that this is the first time that a Scottish tree has been able to represent Britain.

A First for a Tree

“The Survivor” is a prominent tree in the Carrifran Valley, and is a symbol to the local community that took ownership of the land at the turn of the recent millennium. The statement adopted by the community for the tree is ” Where one tree survives, a million will grow.” A very profound and positive statement, for the times we live in today.

This tree was once isolated. However, now it is surrounded by newly planted woodland that covers the countryside.

“This tree rapidly became a very important symbol of our aspirations to see this valley completely re-wooded and restored to its natural vegetation. In this valley alone we have planted well over 600,000 trees. The beauty of it is they are now beginning to reproduce themselves. It shows how you can change an environment for the better, preserve and multiply what is around.

“I hope it can stand as a symbol for other people, that they can do the same thing,” said Fi Martynoga of Borders Forest Trust.
