Nominate your favorite tree for 2021 Tree of the Year

Wednesday, March 24, 2021 - 10:07am

The Urban Forestry Division (UFD) is celebrating Arbor Day this year by introducing a program tree lovers across Wake Forest are sure to love. From now through Friday, April 23, the UFD will accept nominations from residents for the Wake Forest 2021 Tree of the Year award. Trees may be nominated for their size, species, historic significance, personal meaning, community benefit or general notoriety – but they must be located within the Wake Forest town limits.

To submit your choice, visit, complete the nomination form and upload a photo of your tree.

Finalists will be selected by Town staff, then voted on by the community during the week of April 26. The tree that receives the most votes will be announced as the winner on Arbor Day, Friday, April 30, while the submitter will receive a certificate crowning their tree as the Wake Forest 2021 Tree of the Year.
