About the Award
The Right Tree in the Right Place
The Tree Project Award is an initiative that values the positive influence of trees on the overall ambience of a town or village. It places importance not only on the initial planting but also on the ongoing maintenance and establishment of trees throughout their lifespan.
This award recognises the TidyTowns Committee that through their hard work has fostered an urban woodland atmosphere within their community.
The project may equally focus on the preservation of old and established trees, acknowledging their natural, historical, cultural, botanical, or landscape significance.

The Award includes Veteran Trees that deserve to be protected and conserved. Recognition is given to efforts taken to preserve wonderful older, ancient trees.
The size and scope of the undertaken project, along with the tangible benefits it brings to the community, will be carefully evaluated.
To apply for the award, please use the Tree Project Award entry form available from the Supervalu Tidy Towns Website and attach at least four images illustrating the conditions before and after the project was carried out. These images will serve as visual evidence of the project's impact and transformation.
Applicants are encouraged to provide comprehensive details about the project, emphasising key aspects such as planning, execution, community involvement, and the ongoing maintenance plan. The judging panel will assess the applications based on the merit of the project, its significance to the community, and the overall positive impact on the urban environment.
