Some of England’s oldest, most beautiful, and most historically significant trees are listed in the BBC article “Tree of the Year Competition Finalists Announced.” An excerpt from the article:

Run by nature charity Woodland Trust, the contest’s winner will be pitted against trees from other countries in an international competition next year.

More than 200 nominations were whittled down to a shortlist of 10.

The finalists include seven oaks, two yews and an apple tree.

The winner will be decided by public vote, which can be registered on the Woodland Trust website.
